I have never seen such a clean and bustling station.. The tourist information center is located there, together with food shops, candy stores, supermarket... Trains are so quiet and clean, you just want to take a ride.. Everything seems to revolve around the station that is open all hours and is indoors. I found myself returning on a daily basis... More

As other swiss stations didn't feel anything special in it. Regural station. If you have not tried Laderach choco before you must try it. They have a store in the station.

It locates in the center of Lucerne. The tourist information center is located inside the station at track number 3. It has a huge super market under the station (COOP).

While most of Lucerne shops are closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, most the shops at the station were open. This allowed us to purchase food in the supermarket and buy some sweet treats at the bakery. Very convenient and the location is very central.

Luzern is more of a city than Interlaken which is rustic and gives feeling of laid back town....both are their own charm. Some decent restaurants including indian ones....not very impressive...we preffered the local bakeries and enjoyed veggie baquets with fesh pesto and cheese almost every day....easy to find, healthy options that wont deter you from indulging in trying out some...

This is really a spacious and convenient railway station and close the old city hotels and other hotels too. Also close to the bus station. We walked down to our hotel easily with our luggage. There is a nice shopping arcade in the basement and is open on Sundays.

We arrived and left Lucerne by train. The station is user friendly. A taxi line and electric busses (like silent trolleys) are right outside in the plaza.
