Lucerne Mini Guide

Lucerne, or Luzern as it is locally known, is a beautiful city set in a wonderful location. On the shores of Lake Lucerne, it has the Swiss Alps as a background. Lucerne city itself has many sights worth seeing including the world-famous Chapel Bridge, dating from the 14th century, and restored 25 years ago after a fire. If you have hired a car in Lucerne, then a tour around the lake or up into the mountains makes for a great day trip.

The nearest airport is Zurich and will take you about an hour by hire car to reach Lucerne city from there. If you are hiring a car in Switzerland for the first time we recommend reading our Drive Smart Switzerland guide to ensure you know the rules of the road and can drive safely in and around Lucerne.
