I’ve been to this monument a few times and it’s always amazing. Some renovations were occurring so part of the view was obstructed depending on where you were standing. We were there early but it can become crowded with tour groups later in the day....More

This monument on the edge of town is worth a quick stop. I wouldn't say it's a must see but if you're wandering around that part of Lucerne go have a look.

An amazing lion engraved in stone remembering the fallen Swiss soldiers in Paris France. Definitely worth the visit.

This is a great monument. Not only is the art impressive, but its also a very nice monument to the fallen soldiers. The area is very nice. I would highly recommend as a must-see in Lucerne.

You go up to the Rathausplatz, than turn right to the Weggisgasse. Go right along this street. Go straight on to the Hertensteinstrasse to the Löwenplatz. Cross this place and go short left, 30 sec.
