The Lucerne Bahnhof is notable as a work of Santiago Calatrava. The structure is interesting, but the services and amenities do not do it justice. The restaurant and cafe did not look appetizing at all. However, it is in Switzerland and the trains ran on time.

Connects to interlaken, Engelberg and zurich with precise timing and frequency. 2nd class Trains are more than comfortable so no need spend on 1st class.

A very modern and efficient station situated right on the edge of the city. All sights are within easy walking distance of the station. Go down the escalators and you will find an underground shopping area with a number of restaurants and retail shops.

Mostly Luzern is a hub for tourists and rightly also. Central point to reach out to the Alps as well for a good shopping in Luzern. Transport is well organized.

Busy railway station. Clean. People there to help you and the trains were very punctual. A variety of shops and eating places including a supermarket where you could buy lunch.

The Lucerne Main Station, as a train station, is pretty utilitarian. A dozen train platforms, schedule boards, ticket machines. The lower area of the station is devoted to retail and restaurants.
