This photo, taken in Lucerne, Switzerland during my first Eurotrip in 2007, features one of the city’s most famous landmarks: the Kapellbrücke (Chapel Bridge), the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe. There is another uncovered pedestrian bridge visible in the foreground of this photo, but crossing via the Kapellbrücke is much more fun. 🙂
Despite being a heavy tourist destination, Lucerne is one of my favorite European cities, and one of the few that I have visited twice. Whether you’re getting a sky’s eye view from nearby Mount Pilatus, strolling through streets of the charming old city, or sitting by the lake and gazing out at lush green gills that give way to snow-capped mountains, you are surrounded by beauty.
