Good place for wait a train - you may repose, buy something to eat etc. But - I always thought, that on train station the toilet is the part of service, not to attraction you have pay $1 to visit!

Lucerne station is perfectly located and is very close to the boat jetty and one just need to cross the Chappela bridge to reach the shopping area. The nearby restaurants near the lake are a must for every visitor to indulge. great place, great infrastructure and the old world charm

Apart from the cleanliness of everything, the best part was the amount of shops, restaurants and supermarkets that were open later during Monday to Saturday and even open Sunday when everything else is closed.

Our first major railway terminus in Switzerland and yet it was easy to negotiate with clear signs and plenty of them. Unlike the UK it has no pointless ticket barriers to slow you down and plenty of staff are around to answer questions. Our train to Geneva Airport was at first delayed with a technical fault and then cancelled, however... More

Ok but very busy and to be honest rather unpleasant smell when we were there - we waited outside the station until our train arrived - but as usual with swiss trains very prompt and very efficient - found the shops for snacks and drinks really expensive so dont leave your travel snacks till the last minute

The station is well equipped with everything you need from a major train station. The best part is how centrally it is located to everything within walking distance. My best find was a wonderful park near by. If you have made the journey with small kids it's a great place to the them to give them some lunch and let... More

Once you understand the workings of the train station, it's sooooo easy to get anywhere in Switzerland. All of the train station employees/staff are extremely helpful. Remember to arrive early for your departure because the trains are extremely prompt. The boats and buses are equally easy to use.

Well located in the centre of Lucerne for all hotels etc. Our hotel was a mere five to ten minutes walk. The station is easily accessible

Information area which is located downstairs at the station is where we found extremely helpful staff. The train departure/arrival screen was easy to read and platforms are all numbered clearly and each platform has numbers to indicate 1st class 2nd class

A beautiful city to visit if you also enjoy Zurich. Walking the streets of the shopping areas & walking the old bridge brings about the most tranquil emotions & one forgets that Lucerne is a city build on a beautiful lake.
