Thes junious cards for CHF 30 allows children to travel for free on the cable cars, busses, trains etc for a year. The swiss rail offices located on the first floor were also very efficient and helpful... More

I was very pleased to find a mall in the bottom of the train station! It's huge and not to mention, the trains are all very high tech, move smoothly, and don't have many problems. This train station is my top favorite to travel through

We stayed in Lucern for three days. All our travel for three days are from this station only. This station has connectivity for across Swiss and options for bus travel also. The schedule and the maintenance of location is just great, we can completely trust on this and plan our day

While we were here we used the stations several times and for more than just trains,it has some good and reasonably price food outlets,ideal if you want to pick up picnic essentials. The place is spotless as this type can be,staff helpful and the trains are on time....UK could learn from this.

They did a much needed overhaul to the lower floor of the train station. Several quick eateries (NOT fast food) have been added, and a beautiful new H&M department store! The train station already had fabulous service and a wide variety of train destinations with excellent information and large easy to read departure boards. Lucerne and Zurich are my two... More

All main Swiss railway stations are like this. More like a shopping and cuisine experience than anything else. There are shops and food outlets underneath the station, a few food outlets on the main platform level and a big restaurand t above. The information given is easy to understand and, of course, the trains are there when they say they... More

This is not one of the biggest train stations I have found. However the bottom floor is for shopping and very casual dining.
