One of the most popular cities of Switzerland, this small quaint town situated 50 km away from Zurich is direct out of a painting. I thought this kind of beauty can exist only in the famous landscape paintings of Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley. You can endlessly walk around the city feeling the cool winds and cheerful sunshine. The landscape, the lakes, quaint Swiss chapels, vintage cars and sculptures will infuse a unique kind of energy in you. You can also opt for lazing around at the famous lake Lucerne for hours with nice sip of beer or simply stare at the beautiful Chapel Bridge praising its incredible architecture and spotless beauty.Chapel bridge
Weekend Getaways from Luzern

When I was flying to Milan I had to literally pinch myself to believe, that I am going to a foreign land all by myself and living my dream.It was around 11.30 pm when I landed in Milan and divulged myself with some serious pep up talks because I felt a tad bit lost.Amidst all the battles in my head, I saw a young woman walking towards the train station and befriended her. To my surprise, she was warm and very helpful. She expressed, “I will come with you till the hostel and grab a drink. I am very upset coz my best friend has moved to another city.” And that’s how her melancholy saved me the despair of finding my way.The walk towards the hostel was fascinating as all I saw around me were stores thriving to get my attention and at the end of the long stretch was the hostel — Ostello Bello.The moment I set my foot in the hostel, it seemed like I have entered a high-octane resto-pub. The place played electrifying music and I could hear tons of chitter-patter with copious amount of laughter coming from every corner.Amidst all the initial formalities of checking-in, my eyes were searching for my friend (Sigh! Struggling to remember her name). That’s when Helder (from the front desk) said, “Hey! Your friend just went and left you a kiss,” and I couldn’t do much but smile and thank her from all my heart. The ‘happy’ me chit chatted for a while with everyone before calling it a night.
I would rather call it a city of canals which truly enhance the charm of the place. This city in the heart of Switzerland, holds Gletschergarten Museum in it's heart. History buffs would love the place. An important monument called The Lion Monument stands close to the Museum. Löwendenkmal or the Lion of Lucerne is a dying lion carved out of rock as a memorial for soldiers from Switzerland who served French King Louis XVI during the French Revolution.
