Hi Zenia,

Luzern and Lucerne are the same place.

German spelling: Luzern

English and French spelling: Lucerne

Luzern is in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, so the spelling Luzern is what you will see at the railway station etc.

Lake Lucerne (English) is called the Vierwaldstättersee in German.
