Lucerne – What to Pack – Clothing and Supplies

Lucerne What to Pack

Headed for the majestic mountains of Lucerne, Switzerland? Here’s what you’ll need to pack.


No matter what you have planned for your Lucerne adventure, these luggage options are ideal for a short or long-term stay.

Weather-Appropriate Clothing and Gear

Lucerne sits near snowcapped mountains that bring a flurry of mixed weather conditions no matter the season. You’ll need to wear layers of clothing. Bring sweaters, long-sleeve shirts, and a coat. Temperatures can quickly drop below freezing. It can even get cold during the summer months. Because it rains quite frequently, you should pack an umbrella, poncho, and waterproof hiking shoes.

Clothes to Pack

Electronic Adapters

In Lucerne, your hotel room will have a type of wall outlet that may be unfamiliar to you. If you bring your phone, oPad, or other devices, you won’t be able to charge them without a special adaptor plug. You can find a Swiss adapter at one of the stores in Lucerne or at the hotel gift shop. Adapters from many other European countries will not work in Switzerland.

Electronics to Pack

Extras You Will Need in Lucerne

Your best bet is to pack light unless you are going skiing. But there are a few extras that you may want to consider squeezing into your luggage. Because there are so many beautiful things to see in Lucerne, bring your best digital camera.

It is also beneficial to have lots of cash. Switzerland can get very expensive, so you want to make sure that you have extra money or an ATM card with no international fees.

Another thing you should bring is an elegant outfit for dinner. The people in Lucerne are well dressed when they go out, so blend in with a stylish outfit of your own.
