One of the most beautiful and visited cities of Switzerland, Lucerne is known for its eclectic Altstadt (old town), tranquil lake, panoramic bridges and its view of the utterly beautiful snow capped mountains. Located in the central part of the country, it is often considered as an ideal gateway to the mountains of Rigi, Pilatus and Stanserhorn.
I recently visited this lovely city in its coldest month, January and its charm was simply captivating. It just made me wonder how pretty would these scenes be in spring and summer! Nevertheless, here are some captures.
The lake is a focal point of the city around which most of its main attractions are situated.
The Lucerne Jesuit Church is one of the most prominent sights of the city.
The Chapel Bridge or Kapellbrücke is arguably the most famous landmark of the city.
The Spreuer Bridge is yet another famous place of interest.
Known for its medieval architecture, the old town is a must visit.
The 14th century Museggmauer (Musegg Wall) represent the remnants of the city’s fortified walls of the past.
Needless to say, no visit to the city is complete without seeing the Lion’s monument.
