A Perfect Break on any Swiss Ski Holiday

POWDERHOUNDS EUROPE07/10/2019

Lovely Lucerne provides the perfect break during any Swiss ski holiday. Easy to get to by train, Lucerne's classic sites (like the Chapel Bridge & Wounded Lion) provide only a small part of the cities overall charm. The old town & surrounding hilltop fortifications are great for strolling, & are packed with history, views, cafes & bars along the way. In winter there are Arts & Light Festivals adding to the cities many entertainment options. If staying overnight, choosing a hotel or guesthouse in or close to the old town precinct is a must.

In February the Lucerne Carnival is a sight to behold - the fully costumed drum bands being the standout.

From a ski perspective, resorts like Engelberg & the Jungfrau ski region can be reached in no time by train, whilst quirky lakeside Klewenalp requires a train & bus combination.

Luzern is a gorgeous Swiss city made even better with a draping of winter snow.

Beautiful & Fun

Travelled to Lucerne by train from Zurich for a weekend at the end of a ski trip to Austria & Switzerland. Was such a fun yet relaxing place. Beautiful buildings, bridges & castle walls were complimented by the bars & restaurants. Stayed in a fantastic riverside inn on the edge of the old town. Such a cool way to finish a European ski trip.
