The place is crowded with tourists and unlike other places it is not a problem and the feeling is like a big party. Currently, there are nice spots with music and even some hot tea (in the cold nights).

This could be a remarkably nice spot but it’s very chaotic because of the nonstop loading and unloading of bus tours. I wouldn’t add this to must see list while in Lucerne.

This is the spot where all the high end watch stores are. Bucherer is the biggest. The place heaves with tourists, mostly Asian, who arrive by the coordinated bus load. It will be busy.

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!
