Well, we just had to go see him. As kids we used to get dragged here and found it so dull, seeing him 20 years on I found it actually really very moving. A beautiful piece of art that says so much about war and sacrifice. Him lying there wounded and dying in this huge rock with the water calmly... More

Magnificent sculpture carved into natural rock in memory of the Swiss heroes who gave their lives at the Tuileries in Paris in 1792. The expression on the lion's face is amazing to see.

It's a small walk from down town to get to this location, but it is so worth it. The pictures do not give it justice. It really is stunning. Located in a cute section of the city with nice souvenir shops and close to great restaurants like the Old Suisse house, you will be happy you went.

This is most iconic monument in the city. From SBB keep on waking along with lake and after covering about 500 meter turn left. It is located next to huge bus stop. Not visible from main road so you might have to ask people around.

I'd been to Lucerne many times before but decided this time to visit the Lion - only to regret it. Heaps of busses and such a sad and dismal sight. Won't be back and wouldn't encourage others to see it when in Lucerne

The Dying Lion was interesting to see for sure. It wasn't anything that incredible, but it was worth the walk to get there. Make sure to ask some of the locals on how to get there, the maps that we had made it seem like it was farther up the hill than it was.

Short walk from the city centre. Interesting story about the lion. Worth having a look and check out the shops on the way.

Interesting story. Great sculpture. Do not follow Google maps or you will end up walking to the top of the carved rock face!
