All train stations in Switzerland are amazing and offer a glimpse of the local life and culture. We took trains from this station several times during our visit.

Very well placed as a station. Close by to many places. Do visit the Tourist information centre if you have any doubts at all. The people are very helpful and won't have any problems guiding you. Amazing connectivity and beautifully made.

You can find tourist information centre at the station next to platform 1, they are very helpful and they even have live view cam and advise you whether good or not good to go certain places. There is a hypermarket (COOP) at the basement , you can buy what you need and also some shopping outlets.

Easy to maneuver but difficult to find a restroom either at the station or below... More

I loved the way I walked out of an efficient station into an old medieval town! The best train service in Europe!

I really enjoyed the boat ride. Is it a must see or do, no, but it will be memorable for you. At least take it to the first stop. Have tea or a meal and return with some beautiful scenes

We stayed in Lucerne 4 days & used the station every day. We arrived & departed by train & did trips to local towns by train. It is well organized & it is easy to find your train. It has several food stands with cheap eats that are filling if you don't want to spend a lot of money. One... More
