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.
The Dying Lion of Lucerne was hewn out of stone on site and commemorates the fallen Swiss guardsmen who died in 1792 during the French Revolution. The Glacier Garden exhibits glacier potholes from the last Ice Age, which occured 20,000 years ago, as well as fossils of mussels and palm leaves of the subtropical sea region which existed 20 million years ago. The exhibits are complemented by interactive stations and multimedia presentations. The landscape is literally at your feet when you view the world's oldest mountain chain relief of Central Switzerland.
A so-called Stone of Time path takes you through the past to the observation tower, passing the “artificial glacier mill” and the Gorner Glacier diorama by Xavier Imfeld. Once on top, there are spectacular views of Mount Pilatus and the city of Lucerne. The mirror labyrinth "Alhambra", which has 90 mirrors and was originally built in 1896 for the Swiss National Exhibition in Geneva, is also located in the Glacier Garden.
