“typical swiss station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

The lucerne station is a typical swiss station with all amenities, well informed and great for shopping. The stores are plenty including eateries and computer accessories. There is audio announcement for the trains and there is multiple helpdesk.

“Very useful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

The train station is a very useful starting point. You can change any currency into Swiss Francs on the lower level at Western Union, on the other side there is a tourism office where you can book day trips like Mt Pilatuis and the staff ad extremely helpful. There are some good take away food shops and chocolate shops. It is clean and modern. The staff are are also very helpful re train times etc.

“Great starting point when visiting Lucerne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Serious thought was put into the efficiency and tourist-friendliness of this station (and other stations too i assume). The staff there were very helpful and approachable, which helped us bumbling tourists get our bearings without panic. There are a few chocolate shops, restaurants, food stalls and a coop (supermarket) that would fit people on varying budgets which is a big plus. I would however recommend walking a bit further away from the station for a meal as there are some within a 1km radius and cheaper for the same level/type of food. The information office is extensive, but it'd be nice if they opened at a bit later hours as tourists do arrive after 5pm or on sundays :/

“run with the usual Swiss efficiency”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

The station is clean. There are plenty of signposts and information boards. The trains run on time and there are shops and cafes where you can buy take-away drinks or eat inside. It is a busy station but not difficult to negotiate if you follow the signs.
