Lucerne Guide

Guide

Lucerne is in the heart of beautiful Switzerland. With it’s pleasant lake setting and lovely Swiss countryside, it is an excellent base for exploring this beautiful country.

As hard as it is to believe, Lucerne, in its alpine setting, was once a tropical palm beach. Of course, this happened to be 20 million years ago, but the remnants of this ancient past can be seen at the Gletschergarten or Glacier Garden in the city. You may not recognize them as such, but the bizarre giant glacial potholes are evidence of this.

The city itself is easily navigable, but the center is where you will find most of the interesting sites. On the north side of the Reuss River, the old center has a number of 15th century buildings complete with restored painted facades. Near the center is the Lion Monument. This monument was carved from natural rock and dedicated to Swiss soldiers who died during the French Revolution.

If you are looking for leisure activities on nearby Lake Lucerne, you can rent kayaks, rowboats, pedal boats and windsurf boards. A walk along the lakeshore is also lovely. The city also offers good dining, nice pubs and quality accommodation.

In the city you will find numerous shops offering excursions for mountain hiking, white water rafting and the like. However, if you prefer to go off on your own, there are interesting drives to be had if you hire a car. In addition to this Lucerne is not far from Interlaken, another Swiss hub for outdoor activities.

Lucerne is easily reached by rail from Zurich. The airport in Zurich offers numerous daily flights to cities all over Europe.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
