Lucerne

(4.3/5 based on 20,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: nature, sightseeing, childrens museums
In north-central Switzerland, Lucerne represents a small city boasting a well-preserved old town. Visitors to the German-speaking city delight in getting lost in the medieval old town's maze of narrow streets and charming squares, as they find murals painted on nearly every building around. Located on Lake Lucerne with Mount Pilatus and Rigi overlooking it, the city is a popular location to try paragliding. As the cultural center of a rural region, Lucerne hosts many cultural and folk festivals regularly throughout the year.

Where to stay in Lucerne

Small, historical Lucerne is big in its accommodation offerings. Surrounding the bay are plenty of mid-range and upscale hotels for those looking to splurge, putting you right downtown with easy access to sights, bars, and restaurants. If your budget is tight, look into the handful of guesthouses in the city. There are limited hostels available, and they tend to be a bit farther from the city core. Be sure to book in advance to avoid missing out.
