The Brazilian international was pleased with the speed in which his contractual situation was resolved, and insisted he was looking forward to some glory laden years under the guidance of Felix Magath.
"I'm delighted we've been able to come to an agreement so quickly," Lucio told the club's official website.
"Bayern are a massive club, my family and I really like it here in Munich, and my biggest desire is to enjoy plenty of success with this team over the coming years."
Magath also expressed his joy at the news, insisting that Lucio was a role model at the Bavarian giants.
"Lucio has an incredible will to win," said Magath. "I wouldn't mind a few more of him in my team."
