ArrivalOn account of the traffic and parking situation, it is recommended during Festival season that visitors use public transportation. We advise visitors arriving by auto to pay attention to the updated parking system information and to use buses to transfer from the parking garages to the KKL Luzern. The KKL Luzern is located right next to the main Lucerne train station.
