Travel: Lucerne, Switzerland

I recently had the opportunity to spend a day in Lucerne, a 2 hours, 45 minutes train ride north east of Geneva.

Sights to Visit

The Lion Monument


Dubbed by Mark Twain as the 'saddest and most moving piece of rock in the world' .




Kapellbrucke- Chapel Bridgeand the Water Tower

A 14th Century bridge over the river Reuss. 





Museum Sammlung Rosengart 

Angela Rosengart's collection, housing works by Picasso, Cezanne, Klee, Monet, Matisse and Seurat among others.




Richard Wagner Musuem


Getting there on foot from the centre was no easy feat but it was worth the trip. Wagner lived in Tribschen for six years. The views are magnificent.





Places to Eat

We had lunch at Brasserie Flora. Food was good. As with the norm in Switzerland, portions are smaller than we are normally accustomed to and higher in price than what one expects.

There are several other museums and activities to do such as cliff walks or snow-tubing if you're feeling adventurous.
