Trish Burgess writes about her recent visit to Lucerne, in Switzerland
Arriving by train from Bern, the third stop on our Switzerland city break was Lucerne (Luzern).
It was far bigger than I'd expected. I had imagined a tiny village on the edge of the lake but it is, of course, a city, albeit with a pretty old town in a spectacular setting. It was busy with tourists, all clamouring to walk across the 14th century Chapel Bridge or head to the city ramparts to find the best views.
Most visitors to Lucerne, however, are here to explore Lake Lucerne or, to give it its proper name, Vierwaldstättersee.
