We spent 2 nights in Lucerne, Switzerland. Lucerne is truly beautiful.

Our cosy room!

We reached Lucerne only in the evening and did not take up the optional tour so we had dinner at the hotel before going to bed early. 

It was bright and early morning as we all went aboard a boat on Lake Lucerne of central Switzerland and the fourth largest in the country!

Arrived at the foot of Mount Pilatus! We were going onto the cogwheel railway, the world's steepest cogwheel railway! From Alpnachstad to Pilatus Kulm, it's 2,128m up to Mount Pilatus which overlooks Lucerne in Central Switzerland!

Family shot on Mount Pilatus!

It was snowing quite badly so we couldn't capture the view very well. It was sooo cold! 

And so besides snowball fights, we took some jump shots. Not some, but quite a lot cause it was not easy to get everyone up :X

After we were back on foot, it was free and easy time at the shopping area by Luzern lake. I have really no idea what is the shopping area called. Pilatus Street or Old Town Square.

But it's definitely not difficult to miss cause it's a small place. You will be greeted by these beautiful swans!!
