One of Switzerland's most famous tourist destinations, the Canton of Lucerne is located in the centre of the country, on the northern slopes of the Alps. The city of Lucerne, with its famous wooden bridges, is built at the mouth of the Reuss River in Lake Lucerne, a large and winding Alpine lake with an incredible diversity of landscapes.

A few years ago, Tripadvisor ranked Lucerne 5th in its list of the world's most popular tourist destinations, and not for nothing: between the city, the lake and the mountains, the possibilities for excursions and activities are almost endless!

Be sure to visit the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne, which presents the development of transport and mobility in a lively and exciting way. It's a visit that can be made with the whole family, even the little ones will be amazed!

The many excursions in the canton will leave you with lasting memories, whether it's a romantic cruise on Lake Lucerne or a walk to the Pilatus or Rigi peaks with their spectacular views!

The icing on the cake is that the food in the canton of Lucerne is very good, and a very small vineyard of 25 hectares produces very good pinot noir and riesling-sylvaner. This modest surface area has made it possible to set up a common cultivation policy and the entire vineyard works with integrated production, a method of cultivation that respects the vines and preserves the environment and wildlife.
