3-Hour Essential Lucerne Photography Tour
From $361.45

Culturally diverse and infinitely scenic, Lucerne is a photographer’s ideal city. This tour takes photography enthusiasts to secret vantage points, beguiling back streets, monuments and historic landmarks, and dramatic landscapes. No experience is necessary, as your photographer-guide will offer advice as you shoot. Any camera, from simple point-and-shoots to complex DSLRs are encouraged. The guide will also take photos of participants and share them in an online gallery after the tour.


What to Expect
We aim to capture and explore as many historic and modern sights as possible, the medieval world famous Chapel Bridge considered to be one of the oldest, covered wooden bridges in Europe; the Museggmauer, a wall which has been preserved in its original, well-fortified state; the many town squares with its frescoes at the heart of its car-free old town; the dramatic lion monument; and the Culture and Convention Centre (KKL) with a futuristic architecture, designed by leading French architect Jean Nouvel.
I will help you get beautiful images while discovering the most charming Swiss city.

Is this Tour for you?

This tour is intended for amateur as well as serious photography enthusiasts with an interest to visit and photograph the beauty of the Swiss Alps together with its many traditions and culture . No prior expertise or experience in photography is necessary, as your photographer-guide will be there to assist you at every level. You may carry any camera – a simple aim-and-shoot or a DSLR. Travel enthusiasts who are not photographers but keen to experience the multiple facets of Switzerland can also benefit from the tour.

Can I bring my non-photographer partner with me?

Yes, you can. We visit many beautiful places in Switzerland. Having a good time during the trip is as much on the agenda as photography is. Your partner will enjoy the journey with us.

I am not a keen photographer. But I want to visit Switzerland. Can I still join?

Yes. The answer is exactly the same as in the case of previous question. We visit many beautiful places in Switzerland with a spectacular natural wonders, we witness the best Alpine Festivals during the whole year and always with the idea in mind of  having long lasting memories in all our photo tours. For us fun is as much on the agenda as photography is!
