<<"<<"25 Dec [Stay at Lucerne] Explore Lucerne – are trains running since it’s Christmas (national holiday)? Are there any Christmas markets at Lucerne? Are there any Catholic churches since we’re Catholics and would like to attend Christmas mass :)">>
Hi Jane -
I have continued to follow up on this question, to see if I could get a more specific answer.
I asked a friend who lives near Luzern.
Here is what he said, slightly edited:
<<"Christmas Day is VERY quiet. Christmas Eve is when the masses,celebrations, etc. Take place. Everyone goes skiing on Christmas Day.More trains on holidays than on weekdays. 26 December is also a holiday. Restaurants and hotels will be all open. Migros and COOP grocery stores in the train station will be open.Don'tknow of any Roman Catholic churches other than your mentions [the Jesuit Church and behind it, the Franciscan church in Luzern. Those show up on Mapsearch.CH]. There aremany such, though, and many will have services ON CHRISTMAS EVE. Doubt the Tourist will be open on Christmas day or the day after. On Christmas Eve, they will be open until late afternoon.">>
Still not a whole lot more specifics, but you're more likely to find something on Christmas Eve than on Christmas day.
I did look up the tourist information center in Luzern main station.
From their website, it seems that they will be open when you are there till 5 or 5:30 in the afternoon on the 24th. Also some on the 25th and 26th. You can telephone them, too. And, they list a web site:
I think you would be wise to e-mail them.
If you use mapsearch.ch (try this link) you can set in the Points of Interest to select Public Buildings. I tried to get a link to the specific image that can help you:
In case that does not work, open Mapsearch.ch, zoom in on Luzern, select Points of Interest, de-select all but Public Buildings You will see the icons for many buildings, and quite a few will be churches. Mouse over each one for details.
