First trip Across the Pond, need best research advice you have

Jump to last reply

I have about 3 weeks to learn what I can about travel in Europe- Switzerland to be exact. I have been invited to join DH on a business trip to Lucerne ( or is it Luzern?) that will leave me on my own for portions of 2 days and allow us about 2 1/2 days of adventure together.
Having never been to Europe I am thrilled at this opportunity, but the short notice doesn't give me much time to do my usual planning and research ( which is WAAAY over the top according to some ;).)
Please direct me to the best information sources for travel in Switzerland, on line or otherwise, and if you would share important international travel tips - you know, the "things that nobody ever told me" that could help prepare this beginner, I would be forever grateful.
If you have a favorite place to see or thing to do in Lucerne that you would like to recommend, I would welcome those thoughts as well.
Many thanks!!
