Most people will arrive by train. As soon as you step onto the station concourse, that 'It's great to be back' feeling overwhelms you. If you've already chosen your place to stay, its just a short walk to the taxi rank, bus terminal or ferry station. With hardly any waiting time, your soon on the next leg of your journey.
If you have chosen to stay within the city limits, you have an amazing choice from 5 star lakeside luxury to backpackers hostels just around the corner from the station.
Strolling around the streets, checking out the shops or just gazing at the familiar historical sites - Chaple bridge, dying lion, city walls - it can all be done at a relaxed leasurly pace. Yet at night, it livens up with resraurants and bars tempting you in with culinary smells and no too intrusive music.
We love to ride the lake steamers, stop off at some small lakeside town and just walk up into the hills. Our idea of paradise on Earth. Weggis is a particular favourite, just a short journey from Lucerne, large enough to have a good choice of places to eat and plenty of footpaths either along the lake or into the trees.
An ideal location and so accessable. Loveit - love it - love it.
