In June of this year, I flew from Chania, Crete at 6:20am to Zurich, Switzerland (with a connecting flight in Athens) arriving at 10:20am. An hour later I was on a 70 minute train from the Zurich Airport to Lucerne. I walked 10 minutes to my hotel, stored my luggage and went exploring.
The Chapel Bridge is very photogenic.
Since Covid-19, many establishments in the U.S. have created outdoor seating areas. I’ve always loved that about Europe.
The Lion Monument, or the Lion of Lucerne, was designed by Bertel Thorvaldsen and hewn in 1820–21 by Lukas Ahorn. It commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution.
Lake Lucerne is so pretty.
p.s. If you’ve just began reading…I planned an 11 week, 5 European country, 21 accommodations solo trip from April – June of 2022. Photos were taken with my LG Velvet Android phone.
