  • Is a must see monument when travelling to Lucerne. Just impressive how detailed it was carved into the rock.
  • There's a scruffy old cat that walks around here hoping you'll throw it some food. Kinda reminds us of the lion in its scruffiness.
  • Erinnerung der gefallenen Schweizer in der franzsischen Revolution
  • , - !
  • This was one of my most memorable visits in Switzerland! The lion has such history, and the sheer size of the sculpture is amazing! This is a must see, besides the Lucern Lake and the chocolate!
  • It's possible to visit at night - minus the crowds, bathed in soft light, you'll likely have it all to yourself to soak in.
  • Imperdvel
  • Definitely worth the (short) trek to go see it. Impressive stone work.
  • Inscribed: "To the loyalty and bravery of the Swiss". Mark Twain described as:"the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world". I believe he was right
  • Bring a polorizer so you can capture the lion's reflection off of the water
  • It's a little off the shopping path but bring something to eat and enjoy sitting in front of the pool as you look at the monument.
  • Soul stirring. Must-visit when in Lucerne.
