Lucerne Train station is a cut above the rest. Platforms are easy to find and follow, multiple transit boards are supported by clear screens on each platform re-iterating the train, time, and destination.

We took the train from Salzberg and landed at the Lucerne. The station is clean and comfortable if you need to hang out and wait for a connection. If you have a longer wait you should step outside to see the views.

Efficent and comfortable station to arrive in. We came via several panoramic tourist trains from Montreux-Zweisimmen-Interlaken- Lucerne. Time table worked perfectly as did our onward trip, 2 days later, to Locarno through the new tunnel.

My wife and I got off the train from Interlaken Out, and easily grabbed a locker so we could get on with our day, The station is the very last stop for all trains, so it is really easy to get to your train with all of the platforms literally next to each other.

Downtown station with electric trains, near the transit system. Lots of stores and restaurants on the premises. Great place to pick up reasonably priced food.

I was very happy with my trains in and out of Lucerne Station. Everything ran on time, of course, and there were people around to answer any questions that travelers have. They also had several food stands downstairs, which is nice.

This is one of the main station in Lucerne which was used by us many times. We were in Switzerland in the last Easter period(2016) and visited this place after during our excursion to Mount Rigi or Mount Pilatus. There are manyfood and shops in the underground level. We used Migros supermarket which was open for the whole day.

A very bustling station with a lot going on at one time. There are places to shop at the station and nearby and a lot of places to grab a quick bite while waiting for the trains.
