Winter stroll around the Tribschen quartier in Luzern

It has been a while since I last virtually took you around Luzern. Way too long! For that reason, I took my camera with me when I went for a walk around the Triebschen neighbourhood few days ago. I snapped some photos of this lovely area I would now like to share with you.

German name for Lake Lucerne is der Vierwaldstättersee, French is Lac des Quatre-Cantons, Italian Lago dei Quattro Cantoni and Rhaeto-Romanic Lai dals Quatter Chantuns – all can be roughly translated as “the lake of the four cantons”.

Mt Pilatus hike

Because they recently got crazy about hiking, their visit was supposed to be a series of hiking trips around Swiss Alps.

Summer evening in Luzern

Few days ago, when the sunny weather and summer temperatures finally reached Switzerland, I went for an evening cycle ride around Lucerne.

Sunday Walk along the Lake Lucerne

Few Sundays ago my husband and I went on a walk along the banks of Lake Lucerne  (Vierwaldstättersee). We walked all the way from Ufschötti beach to Lido beach at the other side of the bay. Despite the changing weather (one moment we had sun, the very next it snowed), it was a nice walk. Here are few impressions from it:

The truth is not much different. During the summer, cows are still to be found at the mountains. Here is collection of cows we’ve had a chance to encounter on our trips around Switzerland. Enjoy it!
