Okay, so Lucerne is officially my favourite city in Switzerland! Situated next to the beautiful Lake Lucerne, with historic architectural masterpieces placed either side and the famous Kapellbrücke bridge running through its middle – it’s absolutely gorgeous! I couldn’t believe how picture perfect every little piece of this place was!
The sun made everything go slower in the heat and swans gracefully swam next to the patrons sipping their coffees in the numerous umbrella covered cafes by the river in the morning, I had to sigh at the view. Make sure you at Lucerne to your Swiss itinerary!
Lucerne is roughly half way between Zurich and Bern and is accessible by train or car. From Zurich you can take the number 14 road and from Bern you can take the number 6 all the way into the city. There is plenty of parking available by the harbour and at the main train station. From there, it’s a short walk to the city and the main attractions.
