A June 2005 trip
to Lucerne by MayanSecrets
Quote: Lucerne is a dream city destination, small and pretty and a must for every Switzerland fan. Centrally located in Switzerland, Lucerne can be easily tied into any Europe trip. Sightseeing musts include a trip up Mt. Pilatus, a lake steamer trip, and visits to KKL and Rosengart Collection.
I went this June and couldn’t have been blessed with better weather. Every day, the temperature was an average of 85°F, and the city has beautiful outdoor bathing/swimming areas. One of them I can highly recommend - the Lido, where you find a real sandy beach and have spectacular views towards Mt. Pilatus.
One of the highlights of my trip was a visit to the Rosengart Collection. An art-aficionado’s hidden treasure, Angela Rosengart’s collection consists of more than 60 Picassos, 125 Paul Klee Paintings, Chagall, Miro - the list goes on and on, and to make a point, art lovers have to visit the Rosengart Collection.

There are beautiful green lawns or sandy beach to choose from, and the Lido also has a beautiful outdoor restaurant. Unfortunately, I only had a half-day to experience the Lido, but I will be back!
