Lucerne's Beer Heritage and Tasting Tour Highlights

Itinerary and What to Expect?

Your guide will greet you at your hotel, ready to whisk you away on a whistle-stop tour of Lucerne’s stunning Old Town.

Frequently hailed as one of Switzerland’s most picturesque towns, Lucerne is blessed with an old town to rival any of the European greats. With its lovingly preserved churches, fairytale bridges, and leafy promenades which line Lake Lucerne, this medieval center offers an enchanting glimpse of Swiss heritage. Follow in the footsteps of royalty, as you explore the favorite sites of historic giants including Queen Victoria, and the renowned German composer Richard Wagner

As you make your way to your Lucerne beer experience, your guide will share unique insight into the history, culture, and people of the town, and reveal the myths and legends ingrained in the surrounding mountains.

Next, we will head to a master beer sommelier, to discover the secrets behind Lucerne’s famous Mons beer.

Located within the heart of Lucerne, this artisan sources its beers from the surrounding Swiss micro-breweries in the countryside that uses traditional methods to create authentic brews. We will have unique access to the secrets behind the scenes, and learn the time-honored recipes and techniques used in production, as well as the stories behind the famous beer. 

Learn the brewers in action, when giant copper vats are filled and heated ready for hopping before they enter the fermentation stage. This is a spectacle for all five senses, as the aroma of a freshly brewed beer pours, and the golden brew first appears from within the barrels. 

The highlight of our visit will be an exclusive tasting session, where a Lucerne beer sommelier will guide us through the collection of Mons beers and traditional Lucerne beer.

At the end of our beer adventure, your guide will return you safely to your hotel.
