Lucerne means “City of Lights” and, according to legend, was established by an angel’s request. On the shores of Lake Lucerne with heartbreaking views of the Alps, Lucerne has been attracting tourists for centuries, prompting Mark Twain to observe that “the shops are packed with Alpine crystals. Photographs of scenery, and wooden and ivory carvings...Millions of them.” Stroll across the historic wooden Chapel Bridge, one of Lucerne’s landmarks, and if possible visit during the city’s carnival season, which features extravagant parades in which you march “where you like.”
Lake Lucerne, located in central Switzerland, is often visited by swans and other water fowl. The snow-capped mountains are reflected in the lake's clear blue waters. The lakeshore twists and turns, connecting the mountains of Lucerne with the surrounding mountains and outlining the beautiful scenery. Looking out from the pier, you can see the cathedral steeple, many uniquely shaped houses, large trees thatllook like mushroom clouds and red and white Swiss flags flying over the buildings, a beautiful bit of scenery.
The Capel Covered Bridge and the Octagonal Water Tower are landmarks in Lucerne and even Switzerland, and often appear on postcards. Built in 1332, the Kappel Covered Bridge connects the two sides of Lucerne. It is the old wooden covered bridge in Europe. It was rebuilt after the fire in 1993 and has been leading to the octagonal water tower of the representative of Lucerne. Like the Museg City Wall, this bridge and water tower are also part of the Lucerne fortifications.
Lucerne’s sights are concentrated around the old town hall, such as the 17th century old town hall, the Chapel Bridge and the 17th century Jesus Church. You can stroll through the old town where the medieval flavor still exists, and transfer to art galleries and museums. If you have more time, you can visit the lakeside museum, or do sunbathing by the lake, and deepen the beauty of Lucerne. The land is printed in my heart.
As you look up at the Kappel Covered Bridge in Lucerne, you can see the Mount Pilatus where the legends of dragons are told. It is magnificent. In Lucerne, there are even Pilatus Street and Pilatus Radio, which shows people's love for the mountain. Mount Pilatus has become a famous attraction with its steep mountaineering railroad tracks and the “Golden Tour”. At the top of the mountain, you can look south from the peaks of the Alps and turn to the north. The sights can reach the German Black Forest through countless lakes. There are also many easy hiking trails on the top of the mountain including the Dragon Road.
