Bürgenstock Revisited

When my brother was visiting in the summer, my husband and I took him to Bürgenstock, a scenic place atop of a mountain ridge above the Lake Lucerne. Some may remember, we’ve already visited Bürgenstock earlier this year. Because we liked this place a lot, we decided to revisit with it my brother.

Lake Lucerne’s Beaches: Strandbad Tribschen

Luzern is located by the Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee). In the hot summer, as is this year’s, is the perfect spot to cool down. There are many public beaches all around the lake. Some are free of charge, while others charge entrance fee. Strandbad Tribschen is one of those who charge entrance fee. For a fee of 5 CHF (adult), you can enter the area and use the facilities: children’s pool, showers, dressing rooms, bar, football and volleyball fields, etc. For additional fee, you can borrow the sports equipment (e.g. sup, boat).

Summer stroll around Luzern

A past few weeks had been busy for me and my boyfriend. We had members of our families visiting. First we’ve explored the beauty of Swiss Alps and enjoy at the beaches of Lake Lucerne with my boyfriend’s grandmother and his parents. Soon after they left, my brother came to visit. On the first day of his visit he was tired of a long night train ride from Slovenia, so we just relaxed and enjoyed the gloomy summer day strolling around Luzern.
