A world-class city filled with nature’s best flavours
From down-to-earth cuisine up to GaultMillau heaven.
In Lucerne and Schwyz and all around Lake Lucerne, a passion for producing quality ingredients and transforming them into flavourful dishes has made the region a gourmet’s paradise.
The fertile countryside and award-winning chefs are a perfect combination.
The area around fertile Lake Lucerne is where the classic Älplermagronen
(baked macaroni with potatoes) and many other regional
specialities were first made. The creative cooks of Central
Switzerland have turned this little-known gem into a world-class
gastronomic destination. In the city of Lucerne alone, the concentration
of top chefs is striking: 16 restaurants have 250 Gault-
Millau points among them. More than two dozen other wellregarded
restaurants are scattered throughout the region.
