A city with only 80,000 inhabitants, Lucerne’s vast amount of visitors and tourists may come as a surprise at first (punches way above its weight in terms of visitor appeal and number of tourists). However, its visitor appeal is due to its picture-perfect location right at Lake Lucerne, surrounded by snow-covered mountains, which give it a pleasant and cosy atmosphere. As well as a very well-preserved historical town centre, there are old town squares, intriguing churches and one of the oldest wooden bridges in Europe. Doesn’t this sound like a must-see destination?!
You have the chance to visit all of these places and its beautiful surrounding nature at this year’s ESN Switzerland Lucerne trip!

Right after your arrival on Saturday, you will have the chance to get to know all the important sights of the city through a brief, guided tour. On this tour you will, for example, cross over the 14th-century wooden bridge known as the “Kapellbrücke” and you will visit the Lion Monument, a 10-metre-long statue of a dying lion carved out of a rock. After a short lunch break we will continue to our hostel, where we will have a privately organized surprise concert. After the concert you will have a little free time until dinner. After some pre-drinks we will head to one of the biggest clubs in Lucerne.

On Sunday after breakfast, we will check out of the hostel. Then you will have to chance to go on excursion:
Bunker and boat tour: Lucerne is home to one of the biggest civilian bunkers in the world. Built to shelter 20,000 people in the case of a nuclear attack and due to a Swiss policy to provide bunkers for all, it is maintained on a regular basis, in case of a possible catastrophe. After a tour through this impressive bunker, you can enjoy the fantastic mountain views on a boat ride over the Lake of Lucerne, which is surrounded by four different cantons. Then, we will take the funicular to reach Bürgenstock (alt. 1128 m). On top, you will have the chance to enjoy fantastic mountain views.

After reading all of this, do you feel like visiting Lucerne? If yes, then don’t miss joining this year’s Lucerne Trip!
