“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

May be the most beautiful city in Switzerland. Visit the old city by walk, you will see many interesting things.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

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.

“Wonderful mystique surrounding this place...wish I had spent more time here!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

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.
