When strolling along the narrow and charming streets with your private guide, take the time to admire the beautiful frescos on the old facades. Lucerne also has a rich cultural life and hosts various cultural events such a music festivals and its renowned carnival. The Swiss Escape guarantees to make your time in Lucerne memorable.
Summer: During summertime visiting Lucerne is entertaining as we offer a wide selection of outdoor activities such as swimming in the crystal-clean lake, discovering the scenic beauty of the city from a private boat or hiking to the top of Mount Pilatus. This mountain rises to a height of 2’132 meters and displays a spectacular panorama from its summit where you will be able to count a total of 73 alpine peaks which all seem to have taken root in the lake’s waters. Moreover, in July, the Blue Balls Festival, one of the largest music and art events, takes place on Lucerne’s quays.
Winter: For many locals, Carnival is the most beautiful time of the year: curious characters with fantastic masks and costumes stroll along the narrow streets while groups of musicians blow into their instruments and thousands of people dance away the spirits of winter. However, if you prefer to hide in a quieter place, we can organize a guided visit of one of the very interesting museums of the city such as the KKL cultural and convention center, work of the Parisian architect Jean Nouvel or the Swiss Museum of transportation, Switzerland’s most popular museum.
