  • We went in and spent about 2 hours there. Like everything I'm Lucerne it's not cheap for what it is but it's worth a visit. Not sure you could spend more than a couple of hours in there tho

  • Firstly, tickets are 22 CHF for adults, 17 for seniors and students, 12 for kids. Secondly, Expect to spend about 2 hours here. We ran into this place by accident after seeing the lion monument. The glacial park was the most wonderful surprise. We loved everything about this place. The mirror labyrinth is absolutely phenomenal. The tunnel was an amazing use of projectors, concrete and cave networks. So much fun, so much history.
  • Wonderful tourist attraction. It is certainly worth a visit. You will not only learn a lot about how the glaciers helped form the geography of Switzerland, but you will have a great time as well! We loved the Labyrinth, and the tour through time!
