Over 70 special venues are available to you for every occasion in and around Lucerne. The brochure is available online at www.luzern.com.

Special venues

The most-photographed monument in Switzerland was in the past used as a prison, courtroom and torture room, as well as a city archive and treasure chamber. The water tower can now be rented for guided tours and special events (aperitifs or banquets). Minimum number of participants: 15 people.

This magnificent castle lies on a tongue of land into Lake Lucerne. From there, you can enjoy an incomparable view onto the lake, the city of Lucerne and the Alps. The castle was built between 1868 and 1870, based upon a castle in the Loire. In addition to the castle, the property includes a neo-gothic chapel, a farm estate and a large park. Open all year round.

In the middle of a romantically wild landscape, with a breathtaking view of the Swiss mountains, is the Igloo Village. Be amazed by the artfully created bar, restaurant and accommodation igloos. The highlight of the igloo night is a hot bath in the whirlpool beneath the starry sky and the snowshoe hike. Opened from the 25th December to the middle of April.
