Nestled between Lake Lucerne and the mountainous landscape of Central Switzerland, this delightful hideaway lies at the very heart of Switzerland. The Lucerne-Lake Lucerne region is deeply linked to the Alps and the rivers that flow through them by its geographical location but its culture and history are also important factors in the region’s culinary heritage.
The Lucerne-Lake Lucerne region brings together the five cantons of Lucerne, Uri, Obwalden, Nidwalden and Schwyz around the fjord-shaped lake. These very different places have one thing in common: customs and recipes have been handed down from generation to generation. The result is a profound link between tradition and modernity, reflected in the cuisine and far beyond.
