This monument is probably the main tourist attraction off of Lake Lucerne so you must visit. It's larger than you would think and is surrounded by natural beauty. Nothing but the stone lion but it's not more than a 10 minute walk from the lake. No entry fee.

Located in a small lane it is poignant statue surrounded by a water body . The carving is beautiful and is an excellent photo op place. There is nothing else near by and is at a walking distance for city center.

When in Lucerne this is a must see. Easily reached by foot from most places in town it is really a beautiful sculpture. We went in the morning and there were virtually no crowds. Take time to visit it.

I felt humbled in the presence of this monument. You can't appreciate the size and scale of it until you are right there. Take some time out of your day to see it. You will be glad you did.

Nice place to visit, showing old times of ice age, glaciers. Dying lion itself is very nostalgic too.

We walked from our hotel near the lake. It is worth the walk! The sculpture is magnificent and in a lovely park setting.
