The city that began as a monastery.

Lucerne traces its roots directly to St.Leodegar monastery, a small 8th century Benedictine cloister. Over the centuries a community grew along the Reuss River from the monastery to a nearby settlement. Historians regard Lucerne’s birth date to be 1178, when the parish was officially transferred from the monastery to the city. Middle Age fortifications, such as the famous Chapel Bridge, are timeless witnesses of the city’s rapid growth.
