April 30, 2012 – Lucerne Switzerland

On Saturday L and I took a quick trip to Luzern to wander round the city and old town.  I love the public transportation here. It was an easy train ride from Zurich to Luzern.  Why we keep building roads in the US instead of improving the rail system is beyond me.

Some of the things we saw:

“The dying Lion of Lucerne” a memorial honoring the Swiss Guard who were massacred at Tuileries in 1792 during the French Revolution.  If you are wondering where I got that pearl of wisdom; The Lucerne City Guide Tour Book.






We also wandered around the Hof Church and I spotted this interesting grave stone which made me think of Tallulah who seems partial to old and unusual headstones.






We also spotted a few buildings with oddly painted facades



A scary family (The people infront of the window... not the ones inside... although they mght be scary too)


A cool hotel sign


And no trip would be complete without a wondering gnome


The view
