Oh my God, the fifth and last day of our Switzerland Blog Week has arrived. My God, has it been fun. I’ve shown you Basel, Interlaken, Laax/Flims and Sankt Moritz, but now it’s time to take a look at Luzern.
Luzern is one the most populous cities in Central Switzerland, but with only 76.000 people it’s still small. Due to its location on the shore of Lake Luzern (der Vierwaldstättersee), within sight of Mount Pilatus and Rigi in the Swiss Alps, Luzern has long been a destination for tourists. One of the city’s famous landmarks is the Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke), a wooden bridge first erected in the 14th century. Is it a tourist trap? Yes, but in a good way.
Anyway, if you decide to go to Luzern and you want to spend the night in a cheap hotel, try the youth hostel. Rooms are clean and big, atmosphere is nice, lake is very closeby. I can advise you to take a Korean dictionary though, cause almost all of the guests are Korean. God knows why! But talk to them! They’re hilarious. But be careful when traveling with your dog. Those Koreans look pretty hungry.
