Luzern, Switzerland

Day 1:

We took train to Luzern from Zurich Airport. It involved one change at local station in Zurich. It was 1 hour journey. On reaching Luzern we grabbed some sandwiches at the station. We visited the tourist information desk and took local tourist map.

The tourist information centre is at the right hand side of the station. Later we checked in at Luzern Youth Hostel. The hostel is far way from station and we had to walk for almost half and hour. If your Swiss tourist pass is not valid for your stay in Luzern then it’s advisable to have City day pass. The city day pass covers the local transport in the city. Since we started early morning we decided to have small nap. We started our day in afternoon with the tourist map in hand. Since our Swizz pass was starting from next day, we did walking tour on first day.

Luzern city is based on bank of lake and is surrounded by ancient wall. There is an old pedestrian bridge which connects the two ends of the river. The city derives unique character because of the wall and bridge.
