Glacier Garden and Lion's Monument

It is one of the world's most famous monuments. It was hewn out of the natural rock in memory of the Swiss heroes fallen who died in the Tuileries. The American author Mark Twain elevated this lion to one of the saddest and most moving piece of stone sculpture in the world.

In the City of Lucerne, three different sights worth seeing are next-door neighbors: the world-famous Lion's Monument, the Glacier Garden, which has a large mountain relief dating to the 18th century, and the mirror labyrinth "Alhambra" with its 90 mirrors.

Augusta Raurica - The Roman City

The Romans bred woolly grazing pigs, occasionally called their horses "lecher" and sifted remnants of spices from their wine before drinking it. At least that's what they did in Augusta Raurica, the best-preserved Roman town north of the Alps.

Tinguely Museum

The architect Mario Botta designed the Museum Jean Tinguely. It is devoted to the life and work of this major sculptor in iron.

The Tinguely Museum, located directly on the Rhine, was designed by the Ticino architect Mario Botta and houses the largest collection of works by Jean Tinguely (1925-1991), one of the most innovative and important Swiss artists of the 20th century.
