Aug 13, 2018 - Day 3 - Zurich to Luzern

An amazing day. Starting the day in Zurich, we managed to see the start of the Street Party where an estimated one million people came together to party the day and night away. It was pretty amazing sight. We only managed to see the start, where we walked from the hotel down to the lake along with other party goers where many went in colourful outfits. We then caught the train down to Lucerne, checked into our hotel and went visiting the nearby sights of the famous bridge (you can easily see where they have rebuilt part of the bridge due...

Jul 30, 2015 - Luzern

Luzern was our first stop in Switzerland and here is Gee's Diary for the day When we arrived in Luzern there was a very pretty bridge that wasn't going straight across but had a bend in it. On the bridge it had lots of colourful flowers and a water tower. So far I really like Switzerland. After that we went to another monument it was a lion carved into a rock. We ate lunch and I tried to find Swiss chocolate. I ended up getting this adorable box with Swiss chocolates in it. We started walking back and saw heaps of swiss army knives and even...

Jul 14, 2015 - Lucerne and a fellowship dinner

A day at Luzern (Lucerne) Today the three of us headed off in our wee Fiat Punto to Lucerne for a day out. Marina and the children needed a day of rest so Johanna, Alex and I headed off quite early so we could get to this much heralded and pretty little city in time to catch the walking tour. We thought this would be helpful and interesting and it was both of those, plus more! It was about an hour and a half drive on motorways to get there. The motorways here are very good in general, and well sign posted so that's helpful - but we still...

We draw along side my connection which is exactly the same rain I got off at Bellizona , and we have caught it up, I get in the same observation car and same seat for the journey round the lakes to Luzern. I was interested to see how this place had changed, it's been many years since I was last heard and then the station was being rebuilt I recall. What a transformation! The terminal platforms remain the same, but the station concourse has gone replaced with a 'rail city' shopping mall. Walking into the city the famous bridge over the...

Feb 26, 2012 - Luzern

We are now in Luzern, getting here was a bit of a trial, largely thanks to me and my confusion over the said destination or poor sense of direction as G puts it! As there are actually 5 different languages spoken here,(French, french-German, Swiss, Italian and Latin) one can be forgiven. The town itself can be known as Lucern, Luzern ooooor , lucerne, all of which I thought also sounded like Lausanne, which in fact is an entire different place , in an entire different location. The end result was me shouting at the Sat Nav and the driver...

Sep 7, 2011 - Luzern

We started our day off with a cruise on the beautiful lake Lucerne, in which you were able to see very large homes and castle's, it gave you a very different view of the city and it's many bays and the panoramic landscapes, made good use of the panoramic setting on my camera. We headed up Mt Titlis, this takes about 45 mins to get up to the top, on four different gondla's and cable car's including the worlds first revolving cable car.  We went up 3048 metres and you  have a 360 degree view, and what a view, even though it is summer it was...

May 22, 2011 - Luzern - May 20-22

May 20-22, 2011 Luzern, Switzerland This weekend we were heading to Luzern. It was Elizabeth’s birthday on the Friday so we decided to head to Luzern straight after work and go out for dinner. The train was only just over an hour and we were soon at the hotel, narrowly avoiding the rain which started as we reached our accommodation. Thankfully we had a bit of a wait until we had to go out for dinner and by the time we left the rain had stopped. I had made reservations for dinner but had not told Elizabeth where so when we reached the...

Dec 31, 2010 - Year's end in Luzern

After another slow start (hey, we’re on holiday!) we breakfasted in the hotel and then headed for central Luzern. First stop was the internet café to post yesterday’s account and we then spent some time checking out the clothes shops in the terminus mall. Zoë picked up some nice jeans and we then started our walking tour of the city. We made for the famous Lion Statue, which is a memorial to the Swiss mercenaries who died in the French Revolution. It is a very moving carving of a dying lion reposed in a grotto – all carved in one piece in...

Dec 30, 2010 - Sesto - Luzern

Another leisurely start was followed by another breakfast at the café – brioche and cappuccino. We then got stuck into preparations for our road trip. Dishes were washed, last minute laundry was completed, recycling was put out and the bags were packed. By midday we were on the road, the Citroen feeling the load but handling it well. Unfortunately, Barb has had a chest cough the last few days which has now developed into a cold. Hope she doesn’t spoil the trip by coughing and sneezing all the way. Almost the entire trip to Luzern was...

Dec 5, 2010 - Off to Lucerne

Heading up to Switzerland today. Lucerne will be our new home (http://www.luzern.com/en/welcome.cfm). Key words for today are MOUNTAINS, SNOW, COLD, and MORE MOUNTAINS. The weather looks like being kind to us as we head out - overcast and cold (3 degrees) but no rain or snow. As we thread our way out of Como we say goodbye to Italy. Must say that it was everything we hoped for. Great sights to see, wonderful food to sample, charming old villages/towns to visit. Before we know it, we are at the border crossing into Switzerland - a little...

Jul 18, 2010 - D-e-o-d-o-r-a-n-t

I was disappointed this morning to discover the sun was back out. We had a miserable (weather) and quite unproductive day yesterday it would have been nice to spend one more day in Luzern, but at AU$40 a night for a 20 bed dorm it was time to move on. We got ready, said our goodbyes and were on our way once again. The train left at 11:00am and we spent the last of our Swiss money on two bottles of coke. Feeling sick and tired I slept the train ride away. I woke not long before Geneva where we had to change trains. We went through a...
