Right in the middle of town; large old station that is amazingly easy to navigate; clean & efficient. Reach anywhere you want to be in Lucerne quickly & easily from this station. Good selection of food outlets at prices to suit all budgets available.

It is pretty amazing how such a large roof is suspended with little supports. Nice spot to visit and there is a lovely cafe in the building area to enjoy coffee and cake.

Lucerne has fantastic train signage and tourist information centers. It's very clear where to go and the information the TI people give you is excellent. They speak English as well as German, French, etc. We had a great experience.
