This is a charming small town with so many things to see and do. Its cobbled streets, ancient architecture, covered bridges and fortifications are all easily accessible.

Lots of little side streets with interesting shops to see. You can get lost but only for a short time.

We enjoyed the architecture, flowers, and overall old world feel of this area which is filled with great shops, restaurants, cafes and of course, many Swiss souvenirs. It was lovely!

Great place to see interesting Swiss architecture. Lots of shopping options nearby. We had some tasty treats at Bachmans. Very crowded though. Take some pictures and head for the hills!

Stayed 1 night in Lucerne and took a walk through old town. Nice enjoyable walk through car-free cobble stone lanes and alleys. They have nice murals and painting on external wall of some building facade.
