Join me for a walk to the food market (2 days per week) and the historical center of Lucerne
I am offering this city walk on the two market days of Lucerne, Tuesday and Saturday mornings. Since I am living in Lucerne, I like to buy food at the local market. I know a lot of the sellers personally and can give you an overview about the local food, farming and cooking.
Discover the colorful and lifely atmosphere of the food and flower market around the river. There is a nice seasonal choice of cheese, bread, vegetables, fruits, fresh fish from the lake and flowers.
On our tour we pass also at some of the most important buildings of old Lucerne: Chappel bridge, St. Peter's Chappel, town hall, Jesuite church, house of the Cantonal parliament, the many fountains on the squares of the old town of Lucerne and the Lion monument.
After the tour I am happy show you a nice café in town or give you tips for a good restaurant or shopping souvenirs.
If you choose this tour not on a market day (Tuesday or Saturday), it will be just a normal city walk, seeing the highlights of the old town as mentioned above.

I am a driver and can rent a car if you wish and if it makes sense. In Switzerland there is a very dense net of public transport. So, if possible, I prefer to use it.
