One would expect railway stations in Switzerland to be clean and the trains to be punctual... But I had an amazing experience which I feel is worth sharing. I forgot my backpack on a train from Zurich to Lucerne. I went back the next day and inquired at the lost and found, but to my dismay they did not have... More

This is a very easy train station to work in and it also has great stores and restaurants downstairs. Great salads at Bachmanns and great chocolate at Ladebachs. They sell great pretzels also by the door.

Loved this train station. Just outside is the town. Views amazing. Booking areas for tours across the way. Do not forget to go downstairs as the shops there are far cheaper than up top and some scrumptious cakes, food and chocolate as well as a supermarket and pub etc.

We had to stay in Luzern as we flew out of Zurich. We came in from Lauterbrunnen at 11am into the Luzern station and found it terribly crowded. Important to keep a tight hold on valuables to negotiate this station

Call my silly but I am a fan of train stations. I love the movement, the sense of urgency to departures and arrivals. This station was just the right size to give me all of that without feeling overwhelmed. It was easy to figure out, conveniently located and had the old world charm that I associate with European train stations.
