A fine dining restaurant which specializes in Swiss delicacies. The place has an old world charm about it right from the ambiance, tableware, cutlery to the serving ladies wearing their pretty dirndls. A must try restaurant in Lucerne.

Stayed 1 night in Lucerne and visited the Old Swiss House. It is a nice and quaint Swiss design pub with red beams. Short walk from dying lion monument. There is a water fountain in front of the house.
