Rising early we trudged our way though deep, freshly fallen snow to the station in Lauterbrunnen to take the train to Luzern.
Changing at Interlaken, the train weaved its way past lakes and over mountain passes for two and a half hours to Luzern. The snow made the landscape appear in infrared, reversed black and white in the morning light.
When we started to near Luzern the snow disappeared, the grass was green. Overcast skies didn’t make for pretty pictures unfortunately but we had a good wander around, loosely following the walking route in the free city guide.
There were two Christmas markets, one below the railway station and another in the town. We walked up to the grand city walls but we couldn’t walk along the top of them as they were closed in winter. Weaving our way though the streets in the old parts of the city, we went to view the beautiful Dying Lion of Luzern monument and had a little stroll along the lakeside.
Lucerne was a lovely day trip out from the Alps and easy to do with the Swiss trains.
