Today we took the train to Lucerne which is about an 45 minutes outside of Zurich. This city is well worth a visit. It is exactly the type of city I think of when I think of Switzerland. It has it all: an old town, a lake, and the alps.
Debating whether to stay in Zurich or Lucerne? Zurich has more restaurants and shopping, while Lucerne has a more charming atmosphere.
