About the station

The main station in Luzern / Lucerne has a fabulous location in the part of the city closest to the shore of the gorgeous lake, the Luzernsee, which takes its name from the city.

Luzern train station houses both mainline trains operated by SBB and trains operated by Zentralbahn (ZB).

The gleis (platforms/tracks) used by both train services are linked to the same departure concourse, so making connections between trains at Luzern simply involves waking from one platform to another.
However, if you don’t have luggage etc, a quicker route when changing trains can be using the passage way that runs beneath the platforms.
Though it t can be easy to miss, there are stairs leading to and from it approximately halfway along each gleis (platform/track).

City Info

The main station in Lucerne is in the heart of the city, the old town and the iconic Kapellbrucke wooden bridge are within 5 minutes walk.

The Lake Luzern cruise boats depart from easy to find piers that are located in front of the station
As you exit the station by the main entrance you will see a bus station and an archway, the boat piers are on the other side of this archway.

For the gondola station in Kriens (first stage of the Golden Round Trip to the summit of Mt Pilatus) take Trolleybus Line 1 from the front of the station (direction Obernau Dorf).
Then at the Linde Pilatus stop you can connect to bus line 15 which stops directly in front of the gondola station at Pilatus-Bahnen.

For travel to the Swiss Musuem of Transport, one option is take a local (S-Bahn) train to Lucerne Verkehrshaus station on line S3 (direction Brunnen).
However, this service departs hourly, so if you have to wait more than 45 mins for the train, it will be quicker to take trolleybuses Line 6 (direction Buttenenhalde) or Line 8 (direction Wurzenbach) from the bus station in front of the station.
