Only north of Löwenplatz is the renowned Lion Monument, a colossal figure of a withering lion slashed from the substance of the stone edge.
Composed by Thorwaldsen in 1820, the landmark celebrates the demise of 26 officers and more than 700 troops of the Swiss Guards, hired fighter warriors who were executed while securing King Louis XVI amid the assault on the Tuileries in the French Revolution in 1792.
The touching landmark is a standout amongst other known sights in Lucerne, however, the couple of travelers know about another war remembrance in Löwenplatz, the tremendous Bourbaki Panorama.
The 11,000-square-meter round painting finished in 1879 portrays in high authenticity the withdraw of the French Eastern Army into Switzerland in 1871 amid the Franco-Prussian War.
As you remain amidst this artistic creation, figures and real protests, for example, a rail truck, transform it into a three-dimensional scene.
Access to this fascination is expensive, yet in the event that you have a Swiss Travel Pass, confirmation is free.
