The lake is unique and very beautiful, as well as Luzern beside the lake. To enjoy a full day in the city and the lake well value the worse. Downtown has a lot to see.

Every vista is a photograph you want to cherish. The buildings are beautiful, the covered bridges are beautiful, the lake and mountains in the background are beautiful. This is why you visit Switzerland!

When we arrived in Lucerne, the city was very festive. The entire Old Town section had live singers, food stalls and people merrily drinking and having a grand time. We walked around and enjoyed the revelers. I don’t know why there was a celebration but...More

A walk along any old town is charming and this is no different. A nice long walk with the help of a map through the charming alleys takes one to perhaps one of the best fondues under Swiss skies.

This is the biggest city I saw in Switzerland. A little bit dirty and crowded for my liking but nevertheless has many places to visit. So this is a must if you are coming to Switzerland.

Lots of old buildings to explore but we really didnt have a lot of time due to out of town excursions. Bit of roadwork happening in the city centre. Loved the painted and decorated eves on the buildings, very ornate.
