Hi all! There was a break of some days in posting on the blog but here I am again to finish this series. I could not finish this series without talking about the city I was staying, Lucerne. If you want to be based somewhere for the whole trip, I recommend this city because it’s very central, beautiful and a good transportation hub, except for air traffic (the closest airport is Zurich at about 62 Kms). About accomodation I don’t know how much it costs because I was there for free 😉
The landmark of Lucerne, which you absolutely will not miss, is the Chapel Bridge (Kappelbrucke in German). This bridge is like no other I have seen. It is the oldest wood bridge of Europe, built in the 14th century, and with several paintings from the 17th century. However, some were destroyed by a fire. Just enjoy walking around there!
Another nice spot to walk to is the Old City Wall (Musegg Wall). It has a huge clock, but what I liked the most was walking through green pastures with goats and cows. Spending some time there is very relaxing.
The beautiful setting of the city, surrounded by mountains and on the shore of Lake Lucerne, is very nice to view from the KKL – Culture and Congress Center of Lucerne. Since I love contemporary architecture this was a nice constrast to the cozy streets of the city. It also had a nice contemporary art exhibition, but the best part is the view from the terrace.
A bela localização da cidade, rodeada por montanhas e ao largo do Lago Luzerna, pode ser apreciada desde o KKL – Centro de Cultura e Congressos de Lucerna. Já que eu adoro arquitetura contemporânea este foi um contraste interessantes com as ruas acolhedoras da cidade. Também tinha uma simpática exibição de arte contemporânea, mas a melhor parte são as vistas desde o terraço.
I feel it’s such a shame I didn’t take many photos in Lucerne and focused more on the other cities because this was more a transportation hub but here are also some other details from the city.
What are your favorite sights in Lucerne?
