Favorite thing: Lucerne lies in the heart of Switzerland, on the shore of the Vierwaldstättersee, or else Lake of the Four Forest Cantons. In the middle age Lucerne was Switzerland's busiest market town - and today it the medieval character still remains. The old town has been closed to traffic and it's now a pedestrian area - medieval buildings cluster around small squares with fountains in their centre. Modern life comes in the shape of the numerous shops that line the little cobblestone lanes and streets.

Fondest memory: Generally speaking the buildings: each of them has its unique charm - a unique decoration, a unique iron-wrought sign. I also like the atmosphere: although touristic, it does not look artificial - there's very few places/bars/restaurants that one would call tourist-traps. For me Lucerne is Switzerland as its best.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
