Pretty Little Town: Lucerne, Switzerland

After my adventure white water rafting in the Swiss Alps, we ended up in a little town in Switzerland called Lucerne. It was a super scenic little village nestled in the Alps but to be quite honest, there wasn’t a whole lot to do there. One of Lucerne’s most famous tourist attraction’s is the bridge pictured above, which was built in the 14th century, and is called the Chapel Bridge.

Side note: Switzerland is really, really expensive. I think a chocolate bar was like, $5 there (with the conversion rate).

We spent part of our first day there taking the gondola up to the top of the mountain and having a couple of snowball fights. I was wearing a raincoat which was not warm enough at all. We also visited a really pretty ice cave!

Left-Right: The view from the lift to the top of the mountain, the snow at the top of the mountain (in July!), yours truly at the top of the mountain, and another shot from the mountain down into the Swiss Alps.

Who else also thinks that Elsa may have lived here at one point? And this monument below on top of one of the mountains is a natural Buddha, meaning that it just formed that way. Pretty cool, right? It’s called Mount Titlis Buddah. You can read more about it here.

The next day we took a boat cruise out on Lake Lucerne. It was super pretty and the weather was perfect – not too hot, not too cold.

It was a super pretty town. I’m sure there’s lots to do that I missed. If you’ve been there and loved it, let me know what you loved below! Here are a few more shots of the quaintness and beautiful architecture:
