E23***71Lovely picturesque area in Lucerne. It is especially pretty at dusk when the sun sets as the light surrounding the area makes even magical. The bridge itself is pretty and walking through the bridge you get to Lucerne from the lake itself. It's a more lovely way to cross than to take the adjacent concrete bridge. A must visit (and you will not miss it even if you wanted to!) if you're in the area!
