THE MOUNTAINSThe SHL Summer Academy will take place in and around Lucerne. With its picturesque cityscape, location by Lake Lucerne and its proximity to the mountains, Lucerne ranks amongst the world’s prettiest cities.For the more than 9.4 million annual visitors, it’s not just the visual that pleases. Lucerne is clean, safe and, compared to other metropolises, rather small. Therefore, everything is close-by and easily reached on foot.
In summer, when locals and tourists make the most of the outdoors, the city and its surroundings are vibrant and full of life. An atmosphere that is totally worth experiencing.
