One of the places tourist visit the most, especially the ones from Japan and China, is Lion sculpture by famous artist from Denmark. Known as Löwendenkmal, monument is visited by 1.5 million tourists a year.

Old wooden bridge is the place where you have to take a picture when you visit Lucerne, the tower and bridge look perfect from every single angle.

If you want to see panoramic view of the Lucerne, my advice is to visit Chateau Gütsch, it will give you city on the palm of your hand. Fun fact about this hotel, back in the 90's, most famous pop star in the world, Michael Jackson, oferred to buy this place for few millions of franks but the offer was turned down.

At night, when the light are turned on, the city gets even prettier. The bridge, trail station Banhof, Hotel Schweizerkof, Old town, are my advices for a night walk. Hope I brought you closer to idea of visiting Lucerne, it will be worthy, trust me.
