Your excursion destination in Lucerne

At the Glacier Garden we warmly welcome families!

In the middle of the city of Lucerne, the Glacier Garden is a unique destination for your next family excursion. A beautiful place where you can combine outdoor experiences, history of the earth and entertainment with the whole family.

The multifaceted "Journey to the Center of Time" takes you from ice-age glacial potholes through the mystical adventure trail of the new Felsenwelt up to the lookout tower with a view of the Alps. In the enchanting museum with its fascinating cabinets of curiosities, you will feel the spirit of the founding family Amrein-Troller, who established the Glacier Garden 150 years ago.
