The train station is very efficient. The tourist office is easy to find and they sell tickets. That was a huge blessing because our credit cards didn't work in the machines because they didn't have the chips. No extra charge to buy your tickets from the TI either.

Arriving in Lucerne you cannot help to be impressed by the train station. The place is immaculately clean with all platforms easily accessible and has lots of shops where you can pick top all your needs. From the station you can easily walk to most hotels.
We were most impressed by the staff in the booking office who gave us our tickets for the next part of the journey along with a printed itinerary telling us the times, stations and platforms for all our connections.
To use a well-used but accurate expression, the Swiss run their trains like clockwork.

Arrive on time as Swiss trains depart on time.

Lockers can be found on one of the end platforms

Coop supermarket on basement level good for stocking up.

If you are not on All meals inclusive plan at your hotel, you will find Luzern station very useful as it has a full fldged Coop (departmental stores) which will provide you everything ncessary to plan your meals and otehr daily necessities.. making your sanditches or carring sandwithches and juices for your lunch is more or less a norm if your are a buget traveller and the location of Coop inside the station campus is very useful.. also there is Travel Information Center near platform No 1 but note its timings.. Other useful tip is the luggage transfer facility that you have .. in the basement of the station you will be able to find this Luggage section where either under Fast Luggage option you can transfer your luggage to any destination within switzerland on the same day if deposite dbefore 8:00 am or otherwise under normal transfer mode at less than half cost (around 8 bucks per piece ) you can transfer luggage in two days time... very convenient way to travel light and enjoy the beautiful train journies ...

this three story complex was easy to get around in and of great service to the traveller. the main floor is the quai floor with 14 tracks. The tourist info center is on this floor next to the burger king. the upper floor is dining with several restaurants and the bottom floor is a small mall with shops, train ticket offices and a western union which is also a money exchange. there a small stores including a small grocery, various sandwich, bread and chocolate shops on this bottom floor. easy walk from here across the river bridge into the old town.
