Nothing special of this place, it is a nice monument but there is lot more to see/do in Luzern then looking at a stone wall.

“Impressive.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

It brings back Swiss history of serving in foreign armies. The neighboring glacier garden is very interesting and highly recommended.

“Very moving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

A beauiful piece of sculpture, which is in a leafy enclave in front of the entrance to the Glacier Garden.
A little short on historial background, but a great spot for the obligatory photo - if you can fight your way to being front and centre.
For children, looks very like someone speared Aslan from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe - you have been warned!

“An amazing sculpture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The sculpture is made so beautifully that you can feel the pain in the Lion's expression. The place is peacefully quiet and worth a visit.

“"Take the time to visit"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a very moving monument to honor the Swiss Guards in the French Revolution. It sits behind a small body of water whish adds to the beauty. Take the time to really look at the lion's face. It is a moment of reflection. You stand in awe as the artwork is detailed. This is just minutes from the center of town. Take the time to see it.
