A Day Spent in Lucerne
Hi guys! Did you have a good weekend?
Chris and I put on our down coats and thermals and headed to the quaint little town of Lucerne this past weekend. We froze our faces off but had an amazing time.
Lucerne is an utterly charming town in the heart of Switzerland. Visiting Lucerne is like taking a step back in time, with it’s medieval looking buildings and cobblestone streets.
It’s a much larger town than Appenzell, and there was plenty to do and see. We spent our day seeing the main attractions: the bridge, the churches, city center, and lion sculpture.
There are three beautiful churches in Lucerne and all of them have such incredible histories. One of the most famous landmarks is the Chapel Bridge, which is located in the center of town.
Although the bridge was pretty incredible, my favorite thing we saw was the Lion Monument. It’s a lion sculpture that was carved into a mountain to commemorate the Swiss guards that died during the French revolution. A picture does not do this sculpture justice. It’s absolutely credible to look at and is a must see if you ever visit Lucerne.
There was a carnival going on at the city center and lots of people were there all dressed up in different costumes. Street vendors lined the streets selling all sorts of delicious foods and confetti was everywhere.
