Here are some shots taken walking the streets of Lucerne.
Bertel Thorvaldsen‘s famous carving of a dying lion (the Lion Monument, or Löwendenkmal) is found in a small park just off the Lowenplatz. The carving commemorates the hundreds of Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution, when the mob stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris.
One of the unexpected but totally delightful aspects of Lucerne is its many Swans and ducks. White swans swim in the lake near shore (where everyone feeds them) and in the swift-flowing Ruess River (where everyone feeds them). They are very tame and come right up for a bit of food.
