Travel Photo Thursday – Swiss Charm

Hotel des Balances

Lucerne, Switzerland

I was enthralled by Lucerne, Switzerland with its famous lake, covered bridges over River Reuss, and cobblestone streets. It was an overcast November day when I arrived by train from Interlaken, but Lucerne’s beauty and charm brightened the scene. Like many of the buildings in Lucerne’s Old Town, the Hotel Waage/Hotel des Balances has a lovely painted façade. The golden leaves of the tree in front seem to give it a bit of a sparkle.

This photo was my submission for Budget Travelers Sandbox Travel Photo Thursday.

    This is great motivation for me to make a trip to Lucrene. I’ve never seen such an ornately painted faced. Oh by the way, I saw you Interview at Caz & Craig’s site. Wohoo!

    Gorgeous shot Cathy. I was in Switzerland when I was a teenager, and never made it to Lucerne. I think that’s a good reason to go back!

    Thanks for joining Travel Photo Thursday.

    Imagine getting the job of designing the ornate paint job on the building. I would love to be involved in a project like that. Adds so much character and charm to the building

      I wish that had been my hotel! Unfortunately, I was only in Lucerne for a few hours and was on a train to Geneva that night. I did have a nice dinner next door at Valentino Spaghetteria that you can see on the left.
