Lucerne & Engelberg + Mt Titlis- Switzerland

Switzerland is one of the most stunning countries - beautiful scenery with the Swiss alps as the backdrop, lush green meadows and stunning lakes.

Lake Lucerne in north-central Switzerland
Beautiful residents of Lucerne came to say hi :)

The Chapel Bridge - Kapellbr├╝cke

The oldest wooden footbridge in Europe, this foot bridge spans diagonally across the Reuss River, with pretty fowers all over the railings.


Perfect place to have a coffee and people watch









More cute residents, just hanging out



Lucerne is quite touristy - with the main attraction being the endless high-end watch stores.  Unfortunately I didn't have $$$ to blow on an amazing watch, but I did have a browse at one of the stores (5 levels of designer watches!!) 

I did however, stock up on chocolates and other snacks - check out these cute macarons!


Hazelnut


Mandarin

Raspberry 




 Chocolate overload (if such a thing exists!)







My goodies:




Another thing I loved in Switzerland was going up the alps and hearing all the cow bells on the way up, so adorable!



The Lion Monument 

Mount Titlis






They had these adorable cuckoo clocks everywhere in Switzerland
