The monument is very serene. The small pond in front of it makes it more mysterious. Knowing the story behind the monument is helpful to make your visit more meaningful.

This is again a must to do attraction when you are visiting swiss...the glacier museum is right besides it so combine both the activities

If you have a chance to just sit and look at this monument, do so. The emotion of the dying lion (representative of Swiss soldiers killed in battle) is palpable.

We walked there from the centre of town. It is about a 15-20 minute walk, the lion monument is really well done and cleverly created.

Great place to visit... highly recommend. It's a hot spot for tourists so naturally it was a bit crowded but it's a great thing to see.

We liked this monument. It is stunning. Our suggestion is to seat on the bench (next to it) and just look at it. Hopefully, the tourist crowds are going to be light.

We visited this originally in 1997 and never thought we would see it again. It was just as awe inspiring the second time and worth the walk from the railway station.

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.
