Customer Travel Tip: Everything is expensive in Switzerland, but it's worth it.

Liked: I didnt wander so much in this city because I like to just relax and admire the mighty Swiss Alps from where I stay. Lucerne is so relaxing and so homy for me. Talk to some locals are fun attraction, because people are really nice here. Not like the other city where I like to rush to every tourist attraction.

Trip Type:
City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: You don't need to stay long to get around the main sights of Lucerne would recommend the golden trip up the Alps but wouldn't bother if weather is bad as its expensive and you can't see any of the views, unfortunately!

Liked: Lots to offer for tourists to do and see. Quite weather permitting.

Disliked: The weather at the time of our stay limited our activities and could not see views of the Alps due to cloud coverage.

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Pick up food at the Co-op (grocery store) at the train station for most meals or snacking. The restaurants are very expensive. Re-use your water bottles and refill at the various fountains around town. Take the boat to Mt Pilatus and the cog train up the mountain, and take the cable cars down the back side and the bus back to Lucern! Awesome experience!

Liked: Lots to see and do-

Disliked: Pricey
