    Exploring Lucerne

    My fist visit to Lucerne coincided with the Christmas time! The Christmas markets, decorations and lights give to this small, cute and beautiful city an additional feeling of fairytale. The city stays on the shores of the Lake Lucerne and surrounded by gorgeous mountains.

    As for me, it’s always better to visit the main attractions using the map from tourism office at first. Knowledge about them makes the process of exploring other places around easier. I post a photo of the map from the city-guide book, but, of course, it’s better stop by the tourism office and take one.

    The KKL Luzern (Culture and Convention Centre)

    The KKL Luzern (Culture and Convention Centre) is located next to the main train station. It’s a multifunctional culture centre with a concert hall. It has a modern architecture with a lake view and an ice-skating rink during the Christmas time in frond of it.

    The Chapel Bridge and the Water Tower.

    The Chapel bridge was constructed like a part of the defence system of the city. The paintings were added later and they display the history of the Lucerne.

    The Water Tower was build, as well as the bridge, in 14th century. In different periods of exploitation it was used as a prison, torture-chamber, archive and exchequer.

    Jesuit Church.

    The Jesuit Church is the fist large baroque church in Switzerland. It was build in 17th century.

     Franciscan Church.

    In front of this old and nice church the Christmas market was setted up. I love to check Christmas markets in different cities. There are always plenty of unique handmade goods there. One can find jewellery, wooden goods, clothes, shoes, leather and textile products and, of course, delicious food.

    Spreuer Bridge. Musegg Wall. Old Town.

    The Spreuer Bridge leads to another side of the lake, where Old Town is located. It is the oldest wooden bridge in Switzerland. It was build as a part of the fortifications. For the same purposes the Musegg wall was build.

    The Old Town has a few squares with the Christmas markets on them, a lot of hotels by Lake and plenty of nice restaurants and small cafes. The tiny streets of the Old Town hide interesting historical buildings. Exploring them is my favourite part of every journey.

    From Lucerne you can make a journey to the one of the most beautiful places in Switzerland – mysterious Pilatus – mountain of dragons! :) You may find details about the mountain and the travel tips in my post -> PILATUS, DRAGONS MOUNTAIN
