“Small”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

The town is small, but has a lot of shops and different things jammed into it, not in a bad way but a huge variety. nice for a walk around for a hour or so.

“Wander”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

I love losing myself in old towns, and this one was no exception. The shops were all unique and inviting. Plenty of stuff to see and buy, along with nice little cafes to relax and people watch. The old town is near the Dying Lion place, so probably plan to do them both in the same afternoon.

“one of the best old towns”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is one of the best old towns in swiss. The churches are beautiful. The walk across these streets gives such a pleasure. The houses across the street remind of roman times.

“A town not to forget!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

Not only the town but also the people are helpful and courteous. Ther are some magnificent old buildings which look wonderful in the Xmas lights. If you know the place a bit you can also find a cosy restaurant to eat at a fair price. The wooden bridge is still worh a visit even if it caught fire some time ago. And the lake!!

“Old town lots of Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

You must go into Old Town and just walk around. Many old buildings with Paintings and where William Tells house is. Beautiful-lots of shopping but Switzerland is very expensive. Also go see the statue of the Lion!
