Lucerne – The beautiful city in Switzerland
The city Lucerne (Luzern) is one of the most touristy places in Switzerland. People from all over the world come to visit Lucerne. But it’s really worth to see it. Lucerne has many things to offer.
First of all there’s the historical wooden bridge over the river. The bridge has historical paintings about the Swiss history. It’s so famous that even CNN reported about it when it burned down some years ago. But then it was rebuilt to look the same as it was before as much as possible.
Then along the river there are many idyllic restaurants and and old town of Lucerne to discover and go for shopping.
And last but not least you can do a boat trip on the lake of Lucerne which is called Vierwaldstättersee. The lake is quite big and the boat brings you in an nice alpine landscape. If you want you can leave the boat in Alpnachstad and take the steepest cable car up to mount Pilatus where you’ll have a very beautiful view of the alps and several lakes.
You can go to Lucerne bus car or train. It’s about one hour from Zurich.
