A tribute to swiss soldiers that died in the French revolutionary war guarding a castle. Mark Twain visited the site and you can find his comments online.

My mom went by herself separately and her assessment of the monument was exactly as the guide described it. That led me to believe that the monument is so well designed that most people can see the symbolism. Wonderful.

If visiting Lucerne, I would definitely recommend coming here. It was a little hard to find, but it was worth it. There is no entrance fee, and we were only here for about ten minutes.

Much bigger than we thought. It is located on a very nice spot of Lucern. There is another attraction just nearby, the geological formation of glaciers. It is close to a Shopping Mall also.

It is important to visit this sculpture, but there are always too many tourists, so it's not easy to take a picture without a Chinese on it...

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.
