"In case you haven't already..." Lucerne Local Custom Tip by Krystynn

Lucerne Local Customs: 23 reviews and 38 photos


In case you haven't already noticed, the smooth walking paths along the lakeshore is perfect for <b><u>inline skating</u></b>. You can rent skates in the city at several sports shops... Oops, but skating out of town does mean bouncing over a few cobblestone streets before you reach the trail! Anyhow, the nicest hotel along the lakeshore is the aptly named <b>Palace Hotel</b>. It is in a great location and has wonderful lake views. One of the longest “off piste” ski runs in Europe is here in <b>Engelberg</b>.... so if the conditions are right, hire a guide to take you to “the Laub”. You won't regret it. <i>I hope</i>... :-)
