Many thanks to the one who gave ratings, just right now, without leaving any comments.....

Lucerne, derives from a Celtic word lozzeria meaning " a settlement on marshy ground". And that was way back( more or less" in the mid-eight century when the small Benedictine monastery existed here which thought to be under controlled by the Alsatian Abbey of Murbach. It is said that nothing is concrete about the history of this county until 1178. Around 1220 , Gotthard pass was built thus merchants and travellers settling in and the new impetus for growth was created. The first lakeside road was then built 1865.

    Juliet, gorgeous page with outstanding photos of Lucerne, which I only visited once in a daytrip from Zurich. I would love to explore more of Lucerne and especially the surrounding region.

    Nice photos of Lucerne. I haven't been there for many years, but hope to go again sometime soon. I like the boats on the lake, especially.

    I appreciate your Luzern review, another great destination for cruising! Particulary love the Mount Pilatus as you know I am a gentleman mountaineer. Amazing zoom! I'll be back if Ida is still relaxing on the Spiesshüsli terrace ;-)
