Don't forget to walk up the old city wall, the view from the Museum is superb. Interesting wooden bridges on river, very expensive drinks in town but less so if you explore on the other side of the river.

Good:
-After arriving into Lucerne, from St. Moritz, I initially didn't like the rustic nature until I visited the Old Town.
-There's so much to do, from shopping to the favourite past time of the Swiss...dining out at the cafe!
-So much history, is best if you bring your guide book to read, cause you don't want to miss out on the juicy side of the history.

Bad:
-Tend to be more expensive than sub-urban prices.
-Difficult to find public restrooms.

This old town is so lovely. Walking around it is a true pleasure. Many places to visit on it, have a drink, or eat. Don't miss to know Lucerne's old town!

Walking round the Old Town is easy and the old painted buildings are fabulous. Lots of photo opportunities.

A must see of Lucerne, you should walk around without an exact destination as it isn't that big.
Also there are a lot of coffee shops and restaurants right near the water and the Chapel Bridge and you can admire them too.
