Name and location

The Lucerne tourist guide association (VRL) is an association within the meaning of article 60ff. of the Swiss Civil Code (ZGB). The association is a religiously neutral and politically independent organisation. The VRL headquarters are located in Lucerne.

Purpose

The Lucerne tourist guide association was founded in 1958 in order to promote the professional interests of its members as well as to create uniform minimum rates with increasing tourism.

Each member is certified and further training is mandatory for every tour guide.

The common goal is to give guests from Switzerland and abroad interesting insights into the history and culture of Lucerne and Switzerland.

Want a guided tour, a special themed tour, or a travel companion in Switzerland and abroad? The 59 active members of our association will be happy to make you an interesting offer. We offer the service in 15 different languages.
