Monday: Gletschergarten
 
The Glacier Garden is nature's own monument to its history, with a park and museum. It is also a tourist attraction and an oasis of peace from busy Lucerne life. Glacial potholes of impressive proportions bear witness to the last ice age and to the fact that Lucerne was once covered by glaciers. Fossilised mussels and palm leaves found in local rock strata indicate that some 20 million years ago the area of Lucerne was a subtropical beach. A multimedia show and interactive information system will bring to life the exciting history of the earth in an easily understandable way. The oldest large scale mountain relief in the world by F. L. Pfyffer von Wyher and the Alhambra Mirror Maze are some of the other highlights of the Lucerne Glacier Garden.
