The main station of Luzern is well connected by trains to all the tourist destinations of Switzerland. The bus station is just outside with buses to all parts of Luzern city. The station has many eateries like Burger King and Bachman. It has many shops and the Coop Supermarket.

Flat access to all platforms from the street outside.
Very good and clear signage... but largely in German only... wake up to the world, Switzer-Deuch!
Excellent ticket office below, next to the main tour booking office.
Helpful staff and as usual the Swiss trains are clean efficient and on time.

Lucerne station's biggest attribute is that it is central. A short walk out the front and you have the lake boats, the Chapel Bridge and whatever ground transportation you fancy. But, in Lucerne, you can practically walk to anything. Like other train stations there's a mall underneath with groceries (Coop, our home away from home) and a selection of eateries. As in Zurich, there are also pay toilets (McClean) if you can't wait for your train. I thought Wien Westbahnhof was cleaner and more modern, but this train station is pretty good and, most of all, located right where it should be in this city.

Station is in a very handy location to everything you would want to come to Lucerne for. Ferry, boat tours, city centre, covered bridge, lake side restaurants, traveling around the country. We also had 2 seniors with us, one in a wheel chair and we found it very easy (considering) to get around on the trains, boats and touring around. If you can find a Bretzel Konig restaurant, eat a ham and swiss cheese pretzel sandwich, AMAZING! Can't wait to eat another one IN Luzern.

I commute and generally avoid Luzern if I can, as it is, for commuting, yet another crowded station. However, on Sundays or holidays when you need some food or something, there are plenty of shops open, three food stores (MIgros, small, ok, no alcohol; Coop, bigger, good selection, lousy new check out system, a third small shop, a bit pricy) Several Bachmann bakery outlets (best Gipfeli (croissants) in town, in my meager opinion. also good sandwiches, coffee etc), Spettacolo, a good Starbucks alternative, InterDiscount electronic shop, also a doc-in-a-box style medical clinic, several restaurants etc. McDonalds and Starbucks across the street. McDonalds open fairly late, if you need to wait for a late bus or train, best to wait there.
