Luzern - a must see for a tourist in Switzerland

Famous wooden bridge
I had my parents visiting over a long weekend and of course I took them to the iconic places of Switzerland. One of those was Luzern (also known as Lucerne) - a place that probably every tourist visits.

We of course walked around in the city center but we also went to the Gletchergarten (Glacier garden) - a museum that displays holes in the rocks formed by melting glacier in the ice age. There is also a small garden with alpine plants, museum about glaciers and a mirror maze. It is definitely worth visiting.

The Glacier Garden is right next to the famous Lucerne lion.

Even if you don't plan to visit any museums, the city itself offers plenty of wonderful views and is very nice place to stroll around. One day is enough but if you want to stay longer, there are plenty of hiking routes and nice small villages to visit in the surroundings.
