Visit the Lion Monument and Glacier Garden
The Lion Monument and Glacier Garden are two of Lucerne’s most fascinating and unique attractions, and a private guided tour is an excellent way to explore these sights in detail.

From there, you’ll visit the Glacier Garden, home to a fascinating collection of geological formations and exhibits.

These potholes are deep, circular cavities in the rock, offering a fascinating glimpse into the region’s natural history.
In addition to the potholes, the Glacier Garden also features a range of other exhibits, including a mirror maze, a museum dedicated to Swiss Alpine history, and a replica of a prehistoric settlement. Your guide will provide in-depth explanations and insights into each exhibit, allowing you to gain a deeper understanding of Switzerland’s natural and cultural history.
