Wirtshaus Taube

Our first and one of my favorite meals in Lucerne! If the weather is nice definitely sit outside by the water. The view is gorgeous!

I got a very traditional Röschti, which is Swiss hash browns topped with tomato, bacon, cheese, chives and a sunny side up egg. SO GOOD!!!

    We r planning to visit Lucerne in June. I am bit concerned about hotel accommodation since have been reading on trip advisor about “hot” rooms without air-conditioning, flies, noise etc. Since it is a comparatively expensive country I would like you to recommend some hotels in Lucerne , Interlaken , murren if possible.

    I have noted “palace Luzern” and will surely put it on my list. I am planning to see mt. Pilatus but am equally excited about My Regi. Murren gimmelwald & schilthorn r also enchanting and was wondering if you can shed some light.

    I have to ask what a macaroon tastes like! They look wonderful, and I’m curious.

    Lucerne is gorgeous! I was so excited to read our posts because I have such fond memories of traveling there clear back in 1995 with my AP Art History group in high school. One thing I really remember was taking a train up the side of the Alps to the top where it was a blizzard in June. As students, we got to stay in a B&B, and the hostess would come around to our cabins every morning with a cow bell yelling wake up, wake up for breakfast. Thanks for binging back some really fond memories!
