was the second to last stop on our honeymoon!
Coming from Interlaken, we had about a 3 hour train ride over to Lucern. It was a stunning train ride with beautiful views of the mountain sides and lakes. When we got to Lucern, we were so excited because the first thing we saw was a Starbucks!! We ran to our hotel, then ran right back out... only to be disappointed that those tasty, tall coffees would set us back about $8. Can you believe that!? :) Everything was quite expensive in Lucern... but it was a beautiful city - worth it! There are beautiful bridges, lots of shopping, and unique buildings.
This was the view from our train seats.
We gave in... but only once!
Our hotel is the pointy building. It was called the Waldstaetterhof.
This was my favorite bridge... so beautiful. Made completely of wood. We walked across this quite a few times.
This is us on the stairs of that bridge.
Our favorite pub... we ate here two nights in a row and watched a European futbol game with the locals! The beer was cheaper than the soda ;)
This is outside of Mr. Pickwick's pub.
The sleeping lion is a monument that is completely carved of stone. It is old, big, and beautiful.
Our last morning there, we went for a long walk all over the town. We hiked up to the top of this castle and enjoyed all of the beautiful views of the city.
Lucern was a beautiful stop. Switzerland is one of my favorite countries!!
