Standing tall and proud in front of the Hauptbahnhof is the city's historic railway portal. This was salvaged from a fire which otherwise destroyed the railway station in 1971. It is this feature which I feel, makes even the Train Station in this beautiful city look good.

It looks even more imposing when viewed from a boat on the River or from the main traffic bridge which spans the river a very short distance from the portal.

Address: Zentralstrasse 1, 6002 Luzern
