Luzern

A daytrip to explore Luzern and its historic district.

We took a family trip to Luzern – just a brief train ride from Zurich – to explore the famous “Kapellbrücke” (Chapel Bridge, a wooden bridge first erected in the 14th century) and the historic district.  It was a cloudy and sometimes drizzly day, but a fascinating place to visit.  We enjoyed a fine lunch at Des Alps, along the riverfront, a walk along the historic walls of the old city, and a brief exploration of the stone potholes left by retreating glaciers in the previous ice age.  I’ve assembled a gallery of some of my favorite scenes.
