But it would be wrong to reduce Lucerne only to its nearby natural wonders. With its charming old town, worldrenowned Chapel Bridge and famous 19th-century sights, Lucerne is steeped in history. That said, the city has all of the advantages of a proper urban centre. You’ll find plenty of good shopping opportunities as well as a fair share of good restaurants serving traditional Swiss cuisine as well as more contemporary fare. And Lucerne’s nightlife scene shouldn’t be overlooked, especially some of the classy bars in the city’s grandest hotels .
Last but not least, Lucerne is brimming with culture. The superb concert halls at the KKL Lucerne draw the best talents from the world of classical music as well as pop and rock stars from around the globe.
