Switzerland is an absolutely beautiful country. Situated in the heart of the European Alps, Switzerland has some of the most stunning mountain landscapes in all of Europe. However, because Switzerland is the most mountainous country in Europe, people tend to overlook the fact that Switzerland’s beautiful landscapes consist of more than just mountains. Some of the most beautiful lakes, valleys, and cities that I have seen in my travels I saw while visiting Switzerland.
Perhaps no other city in Switzerland combines the mountains, a beautiful lake, and a charming city into one package like the city of Lucerne. Just a short lift ride from being in the thick of the Swiss Alps, and sitting on the coast of one of Switzerland’s most beautiful lakes, Lucerne really does have it all. Not many other places can you go sailing in the morning and then take a trip up into the mountains in the afternoon.
