Four fun ways to celebrate the New Year in Lucerne

Whilst you may be in the midst of Christmas shopping and planning some fun, festive activities, the New Year will follow soon after Christmas and we wanted to share some ideas of how to spend the evening in Lucerne. Some activities may require booking so it’s probably worth thinking about in advance!


Lucerne New Year Firework Display

Not to be missed is an incredible fireworks display which will light up the sky on 1 January at 8.15pm. You will be able to get a view of the beautiful display from all over the town, but we recommend a spot near the lake.
