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.
