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.

We took the train into Lucerne from the Zurich airport and it was a breeze disembarking and walking to our hotel four blocks away. Lots of activity around the station and a pleasant walk in the evening. Easy access to Old Town and downtown hotels. 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

Arrived my Lake Luzern Boat Trip (Will Tell Express) then rolled our luggage past Hub area for City Buses. All next to or in front of Luzern Bahnhof.. We used the Ticket kiosk inside the Terminal to purchase train tickets, there is a ER Clinic next to CO OP. Go down stairs via escalators to TI and shopping and takeaway... More

This is grand old station connected to a huge modern one. It's chaotic but well managed and has good flow of people. It's super close to the Old Town of Lucerne which is beautiful. Good hub. Not too dirty or scary.
