Create an itinerary including Altstadt Luzern
One of Switzerland's best-preserved medieval quarters, Altstadt Luzern attracts visitors with its maze of narrow streets, cobbled passages, and public squares. Located just north of the Reuss River and surrounded by the remains of Lucerne's medieval city walls and towers, the old quarter features an idyllic lakeside promenade flanked by a string of half-timbered buildings with elaborately decorated fronts. The pedestrianized Old Town contains most of the city's major cultural attractions, including the oldest wooden footbridge in Europe. This easily recognizable landmark serves as a convenient starting point for sightseeing tours.

  • Lucerne is such a beautiful place to visit, bustling with life. The scenery is simply magnificent and there are a lot of interesting shops. Definitely a must see when in Switzerland!

  • Great location in the heart of the old town. Room was nice and breakfast exceptional. Only negative was due to noise. A street market in the square at the front, was setting up very early in the morning. Not the fault of the hotel.
  • Do *not* stay here in the summer months. Rooms were sweltering, with little or no A/C. Fans were provided, but they didn’t have much effect. Every member of our family had trouble sleeping, including some who are usually quite heat-tolerant. Maybe it would have been better on the lower floors, but do yourself a favour and don’t leave it up to chance: stay elsewhere.
