How to visit Luzern in one day

We moved to Luzern so it will be easier to fly back from Zurich as there is direct train leaving from Luzern to Zurich flughafen every hour.

We checked out our airbnb in the morning and took the train to Luzern. It was a beautiful 2 hour journey along lake brienz. Lake brienz has the same beautiful colour like Lake Thun. I felt so lucky we got to see both lakes.
View from the train:

We walked to Ibis Budget hotel. It was 900m from train station and the walking area is flat.

Achita was very cooperative after I told her firmly that we have to use her stroller to help carrying out luggage and she would have to walk. She walked with us and let me use her stroller to carry stuff

Checked in process in Ibis was swift and we were given free bus card for the 2 days we are staying. I think all Hotels in Luzern are giving the free bus pass. There are also buses passing our hotel to train station and city center. Hotel location is very convinient. After dropping our bags in the room we took the bus to tye chapel bridge. We could actually walk but as we got the free bus pass we wanted to try the bus.

Luzern city is centered around the lake. Achita got really excited seeing swans and ducks floating on the lake and she wanted to spend times observing them lol.

The old town

We had a good stroll in the city and climb up to the garden where the clock tower is and see the view of the city from above. Locating the gatden is tricky because there was no sign and the church gate was locked. We walked a bit further and finally saw a path leading to the garden on our left.

We came back to hotel when it started to get dark. That was our last night in Swiss as we’re flying home the next day.

Luzern was the last city in our 2 weeks summer trip. Overall we only spent 5 days in Switzerland, too short really. The country is so beautiful and really nice in the summer. I hope we can return one day when Achita is bigger so we can do some hiking.
