In the north of Löwenplatz is the remarkable Lion Monument in Lucerne, which was designed by Thorwaldsen in 1820. The figure of the dying Lion was carved in a sandstone rock ledge to commemorate the Swiss soldiers who lost their lives during the French Revolution, protecting the royal family. About 26 officers and over 700 Swiss soldiers lost their lives at Tuileries Palace.
This mournful monument is more than just a tourist attraction; it is a mark of a significant sacrifice in history. The memorial has essential information engraved right below the Lion that helps learn about the history of that time. This poignant monument is one of the best-known places to see in Lucerne.
