In north-central Switzerland, Lucerne represents a small city boasting a well-preserved old town.
Step off the beaten path and head to Basel's Old Town and Altstadt Schaffhausen. Visit Jesuitenkirche and Museggmauer for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Lucerne side-trips: Santis der Berg (in Urnaesch), Munot (in Schaffhausen) and Seealpsee (in Wasserauen). Next up on the itinerary: explore the striking landscape at Glacier Garden (Gletschergarten), take in the spiritual surroundings of Hofkirche, make a trip to Kornmarkt, and get a sense of history and politics at Town Hall.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Lucerne fast, fun, and easy.

As one of the country's oldest ski resorts, Grindewald serves as a prime example of a cozy Swiss ski town.
