Located in the centre of Switzerland, on the shore of Lake Lucerne and right at the base of Pilatus Lucerne is definately the most scenic city of Switzerland. It gained ist wealth due to the location on the trading route between Italy and Germany and many buildings give you an insight of the precious past of Lucerne. Especially the lake shore, covered wooden bridges and cobbled alleys warrant gorgous shots for fotographers. Visit as well the two main churches of Lucerne, the famous Lion Monument and the town-hall with ist own brewery. Tips for restaurants and shopping will be given.
