Discover Sursee

City Tours Sursee
Visit Sursee and discover what's new - or unfamiliar to you - in this city that is both historic and modern!

In the middle of a dynamic, constantly evolving region, Sursee has retained much of its amazing historical identity. lts old town is rich in attractions and offers a wealth of surprising features from a history that dates back more than 700 years.

The ancient city hall and marketplace in late gothic style, the parish church of St George, the ossuary chapel of St. Martin, three convent cloisters, the lower gate with the old sharpshooters' house, and the prison tower for thieves and witches - all have been carefully restored over the past four decades. As part of a guided tour, some of them can also be visited inside.

On a tour of the city you also can get impressions of the architectural redesign of the past few years, for which Sursee was awarded the Wakker Prize* in 2003.

*The Wakker Prize is awarded by the Swiss Heritage Society (SHS) and honors political communities in Switzerland, for exemplary townscape protection.
