Won't be going to Lucerne again!

Jump to last reply

We went on a Moscow, Munich, and Switzerland trip from which we just returned.

One place we went back to in Switzerland was Lucerne (for 2 days). The first time we were in Lucerne was in 2004. It was glorious. The second time was in 2013 in April, cold and grey but still beautiful and the height of the season hadn't started.

This time was the third week of September. Well, the hordes of tour groups was almost overwhelming. Tour group leaders yelling; people with selfie sticks. Difficult to walk around. And this wasn't even the summer! I can't imagine what it must be like in June/July/August.

What a change from our first trip in September 2004. So sad.
