Trail recommendations in the Lucerne region

Lucerne, the picturesque city on Lake Lucerne, is not only known for its breathtaking backdrop of mountains and lakes, but also for its rich history and diverse culture. Nestled in idyllic Central Switzerland, this region offers a wealth of outdoor activities and exploration opportunities to delight visitors and locals alike.

The city of Lucerne itself enchants with its medieval charm, characterised by picturesque alleyways, historic buildings and an impressive old town. The famous Chapel Bridge, the city’s landmark, attracts visitors from all over the world and offers a marvellous view of the surrounding mountains. Walks along the shores of Lake Lucerne and through the winding streets of the old town take you back in time, while modern art galleries and lively markets reflect the city’s cultural heritage.

Foxtrail Apollon – Lucerne City

Apollon captivates with an exciting story and intricate puzzles. The search for Richard Wagner’s lost score leads on a journey to the Tribschen neighbourhood. But what happened to the score? It has been considered lost since the Second World War. Was it destroyed? Or is it still hidden in a secret place in Lucerne? The path to the lost score leads the teams to ice-cold puzzles and musical surprises. The solution is finally found in a secret location! But the team doesn’t have time to celebrate (yet) – the press conference is waiting.
