If you want to see a beautiful town in Switzerland, you shouldn't miss Luzern. It isn't so big, so you can walk through it well. You will see the wooden bridge, small streets, the lake, churches, and frescoed buildings.

Besides it's also nice to go to some observatories to look down the lake and town.

Kapell bridge

This is the most famous point in Luzern. The bridge is wooden, so it makes good sound when you walk on it. And you will see 110 painting under the roof, but many were damaged by fire in 1994.

In sommer the bridge is decorated with flowers and it is so beautiful.
