City Guide: Lucerne

LUCERNE can turn any atheist to faith.

As legend has it, a holy angel brought first settlers to the area of modern Lucerne and bestowed on the city a non-earthy beauty. Since than Lucerne proves to be straight out of a fairy tale through its stunning vistas, beautiful lake and dramatic mountainous background.

Lucerne is too beautiful to be believed, so it demands you stay there. Be it a room in cheap hotel in Lucerne to a lap of luxuries all listed with maps, photos and secure forms at Booked.net.

But facts push Lucerne away from fabled stories to a fishing community that quickly evolved into a trading post at the Gotthard pass joining Lucerne to the Alp's gateway and then to France. It was a commercial route with numerous merchants packing Lucerne for overnight stays while carrying goods en-rote to France.

With time, its position at the crossroads shaped a strong Roman-Catholic community and today Lucerne keeps tight links to religious traditions. This religious background once prevented Lucerne from gaining the capital credentials of Switzerland in the 1840s.

Despite the failed attempt to win a slice of power, Lucerne was more lucky with tourism in the area. It is no surprise to Lucerne that visitors pour into the city for its natural beauty, and historic buildings.

Attractions include;

  • Lake Lucerne, the largest lake in Switzerland and a distinct must-see

  • The Chapel Bridge, built in 1333 for the strategic goals, but today serves as unique in architecture construction

  • The Nine Towers offer panoramic views of the old city

  • Historisches Museum Luzern traces the history of the city starting from the early years till today

  • Richard Wagner Museum, an old-fashioned museum dedicated to Wagner's life

  • Swiss Transport Museum houses rich displays on vehicles

In the 19th  century the biggest part of the old-world architecture was in decay while waiting for renovation. Short of money, Lucerne managed to pour money to tart up its face only in 1850s on cash earned from railroad transitions.

Since then its charming look started attracting legions of tourists, and the city of Lucerne never looked back. In addition, new amenities arrived to the city packing it with world-class dining, stylish clubs, pubs and other public houses. Along with big-city entertainment came an abundance of hotels from cheap to luxury all available at Booked.net.
