InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Lucerne

Hello to all Americans in Lucerne! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Lucerne? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Lucerne which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Lucerne offers a great quality of life. The popular tourist destination is a comparatively small city known for its stunning surroundings, medieval buildings, Fasnacht (Carnival) celebrations, and much more! With the easily walkable center, local city and trolleybuses, and suburban commuter trains (S-Bahn), navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the towns of Lucerne’s wider urban area or less central municipalities like Horw or Littau, which are just a short commute away from Lucerne’s center.

Although Lucerne has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Lucerne, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.

An amazing community is waiting for you!
