Travel Blogs from Lucerne
... we decided to go budget for our meals. Moreover, food or any other item in Zurich is just overpriced.
So we went to Coop to get food to cook. That really saves us a lot of money.
The next morning we went to lucerne for our free cruise for eurail pads holders. The cruises take at least 3 hrs. It gets boring after a while on board as there isn't much to see.
Lucerne's chapel bridge is really pretty and like zurich, it is an expensive city.
... came across a bunch of posters advertising the Zurich Film Festival. I decided to spend about 10% of the price of a hockey ticket to see Away We Go, the new movie with Jim from The Office. Unfortunately this was not a film that had “talent present”. There are actually a few big names going to be at the fest this year, but not on this night. I give the movie a 7.5/10, it was not bad. Jim had a beard too. Beards are cool.

Thousands of people crowded the sidewalks and the peers, swam in the lake, or had drinks by the water. I was in my suit so I felt overdressed. We stayed for about ½ an hour, then we left.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Alpha Lucerne
When we checked in the hotel seemed to be on a quiet street. However just across the road is an area where local teens congregate at night - on Saturaday night they were yelling and screaming until about 4am. The rooms are hot and stuffy - no A/C or fans so we needed to keep window open - so no sleep for us.Tried to get a room change but although the hotel acknowledged the problem they wouldn't do anything about it. Sunday afternoon was the same (we were trying to catch a nap after the night before) Sunday night was a lot better.
Other than that, good location (10 min walk to the station and town centre) and a good price for Lucerne. But if you want a gaurenteed sleep you may want to try somewhere else....
