"Lion monument" Löwendenkmal - Lion Monument Tip by rcsparty

Löwendenkmal - Lion Monument, Lucerne: 46 reviews and 69 photos


If you get here early, this place is like an oasis in the city. I found this to be a very touching memorial to the Swiss Guards massacred during the French Revolution, and it is a must see in Luzern. you can almost feel the sadness in the sculpture. The later in the day that you arrive, the more overrun with tourist this area becomes. It becomes less of an oasis and more of a beehive, and the chances of getting a picture without a crowd the shot becomes less and less. You can follow signs from the old town and it is about a 15-20 minute walk.
