The swan square is next to lake Lucerne. It is quite busy, full of offices and shops. It is picturesque and good for a stroll.

Don’t worry about adding this to your list. It’s only a square. Just put down the main landmarks and don’t worry about these minor squares

Known as Swan Square, this is one of the loveliest / busiest parts of the city - railway station, boat station, landmark bridges, shopping areas, swans aplenty - you have it all!

This area of Lucerne is always busy with cars and coaches. There are many places to eat and drink around here but its really just the first part near where you go into the Old Town area.

I found amazing to promenade through the Old Town. The view from Schwanenplatz combines the city old side with the mountaine landscape, the beutiful lake, the bridge and the city modern side with its Central Train Station

Schwanenplatz was near to town center and by the lakeside. The place was always crowded with vehicles and visitors and nearly all the coaches for tourists would use this roundabout for drop-down and pick-up point. There were many shops for selling watches and chocolates around...More

Its just in the middle of town, near to station and other monuments. Occasionally very crowded with lots of tour operator buses pickup and drop off just in front of it. From here you can easily visit the old town market and streets, which are...More
