The Canton of Lucerne showcases the lakeside city of Lucerne with an impressive panoramic view of the Swiss Alps. At the heart of this historical old town, dotted with watercolor-painted houses, is the medieval Chapel Bridge, complete with gable paintings and considered one of the oldest covered wooden bridges in Europe. This holiday spot brings excellent opportunities for tours of the old squares and churches, including a 17th-century Jesuit church regarded as Switzerland's first sacral Baroque building. Your itinerary may include the Culture and Convention Centre of Lucerne, the Swiss Museum of Transport, or a cable car trip up one of the neighboring mountainsides.
