In north-central Switzerland, Lucerne represents a small city boasting a well-preserved old town.
Attractions like Lake Zurich and Chapel Bridge make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Lucerne's surroundings by going to Zurich (Grossmunster & Zoo Zurich). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mt Pilatus, get curious at Verkehrshaus der Schweiz, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Lucerne, and pause for some photo ops at Lion Monument.

For photos, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, read Lucerne travel itinerary planner.

Surat, India to Lucerne is an approximately 20-hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 4.5 hours traveling from Surat to Lucerne due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Surat in October, things will get colder in Lucerne: highs are around °C and lows about °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Fri) early enough to drive to Interlaken.
