Really lovely, this city sitting right beside Lake Lucerne. Having a guide is so helpful as they explain the history of the city. Would have gotten lost without her.

We are called "Free Walk Lucerne". Our website is freewalk.ch/lucerne I will look into checking the visibility of that information. It should be publicly accessible.
