Bounce has a storage location right in the heart of Lucerne’s old town near Grabenstrasse. So, if you are spending your day in the city, this is the perfect location to store your luggage. Just pay attention to the opening hours of the location and make sure you can get your luggage later in the day when you leave.

If the opening hours are too limited then the next best option for you is the luggage lockers at the Lucerne train station.

Luggage Lockers

The train station in Lucerne is decked out with 186 lockers of all sizes, perfect for stashing your stuff for up to 72 hours. They’re a good fit for everything from small to pretty big suitcases or backpacks. But if you’re hauling something that’s even bigger than their largest locker, or you’ve got a bulky item that just won’t squeeze in, their left luggage counter could be your best bet.

The lockers are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so you don’t have to worry about not being able to get your suitcases early or late in the day!

The great thing about the new lockers in Lucerne is that you can pay with a variety of different options: coins, debit/credit card, mobile payment or the local system: Twint.

And as they are pretty modern you don’t get a key, but a QR code you use to open it again. Just don’t lose it, as you have to pay for a replacement to get it open again!

Luggage Locker sizes in Lucerne train station (cm and inches)

Lucerne train station is quite big, so you might be wondering where the lockers are? The luggage lockers are along Platform 14, which is on the lakeside (KKL side) of the train station. Or, if you are the town end of the platform looking down the tracks, they are on the far left. (It would be better if they were on Platform 1 if you ask me, but I guess space was an issue!).

Below is a map to help you orientate yourself and find the lockers.

Have you thought about checking with your hotel if they offer luggage storage? Most hotels offer this free service up until it’s time for you to leave for the day.
