When no huge groups of tourists were there it was a calm place to relax on some benches. Bathrooms are right there and it’s about a 10-15 min walk outside of the main town area. Beautiful carving and a nice place to rest and enjoy...More

Nice to see the Lion's portrait engraved in stone. There was no guiding information about the Monument. Not properly maintained also.

We have seen this monument several times. It is very impressive. The guide we had gave us interesting information about it. Would recommend if you are in Lucern to take the time and go see it.

Standing at the pool, looking up at the Dying Lion of Lucerne will simultaneously break your heart and a take your breath away. I still have the feels just thinking of it almost a year later. Definitely "a must".

A peaceful park with the Lion Monument above a reflecting pool. The monument is free to visit and illuminated at night. It can get crowded as it is just off the lake and a popular stop for buses.

You need to know the full story. If a guide does not explain, Google why the larger outline of the lion is in the shape of a large pig. The power of unhappy artists! This is a very beautiful, peaceful sight but takes only 10...More

We stumbled upon this during an after-dinner walk so there were no tourists hanging out except for us. The monument is lit at night (not sure if it's all night, it was about 8:30 pm). We later came back in the early afternoon the next...More

You go up to the Rathausplatz, than turn right to the Weggisgasse. Go right along this street. Go straight on to the Hertensteinstrasse to the Löwenplatz. Cross this place and go short left, 30 sec.
