What impressed me the most about Lucerne was the friendliness of the people. They were always willing to help in whatever way, and most spoke English which was a tremendous help! Lucerne is a city that is planned very well, so it is easy to get around in.

Lucerne has a well established cultural scene. We have a City Theater, two smaller theatres (Kleintheater and Theater La Fourmi), Cultural Centers (Schüür, Werkhof, boa, Sedel), several clubs with live music, and the top of it all: The newly built Cultural and Congressional Center. In the marvellous building, you can attend concerts or musical of the world's best musicians.
Tickets for any kind of cultural activity in Switzerland are mostly available at the institution itself (Lucerne theatre, Kleintheater, KKL) or at the Ticket Corner, which is located in the underground service area at the train station, in the main post office at the station square or the branch of the United Bank of Switzerland UBS at Schwanenplatz.

“Chlausä triichlä” (cowbells)
During our visit we came across the ringing of “Chlausä triichlä” (cowbells) which is rung in procession to honour St. Nicholas. It is tradition which is considered a large part of the winter season.
Those Heissi Marroni nuts are common and available everywhere, someone try to explain me why his are better then others, anyhow, you can try those while strolling around the old city
Some men where fishing not by the river but in the river, and, as you can see, the water are not that deep in the river..
I am not sure exactly if this is a local Swiss traditional toast, but in Höfli Café they served us this toast which was excellent.
