Glacier Garden / Lion Monument

Glacier Garden / Lion MonumentFrom the subtropical palm-beach to the glaciers of the Ice Age!
The Glacier Garden is an outstanding natural monument with gigantic glacial potholes and erratic blocks from the Ice Age 15,000 to 20,000 years ago, and with fossilized shells and palm leaves dating back 20 million years.
Museum with the oldest relief map of Switzerland, a historical model of the city and a fun hall of mirrors.
Just a few steps away, you find "The dying Lion of Lucerne", which Mark Twain described as the "saddest and most moving piece of rock in the world". The Lion Monument was hewn out of natural rock in memory of the heroic death of the Swiss mercenaries at the Tuileries in 1792.
