Where should I stay in Interlaken or Lucerne Switzerland?
So if you are interested in higher views and higher mountain peaks around you, then definitely Interlaken is the better choice compared to Lucerne. Especially if you plan on hitting two to three mountains during your stay. The views from the mountains around Lake Lucerne are gorgeous.
Is Lucerne safe at night?
Easy very short answer, yes perfectly safe, just be sensible and take the usual precautions about your personal belongings.
How many days in Lucerne is enough?
Three days in Lucerne is going to be a beautiful experience. Finding somewhere to sit back and relax, while surrounded by the beauty, allows you to appreciate being there. It was truly one of the most beautiful cities I've ever seen and there were countless options for outdoor seating, boat rides, and more.
Lucerne is definately worth visiting for a few days (we found 3 nights to be perfect). Lucerne, an ideal place to stay or visit. In the Town itself there are the usual shops and attractions including the centuries old wood pedestrian bridge.
The best time to visit Lucerne is between April and October when the weather is good to enjoy outdoor activities. However, there is a higher chance of rain during these months as well.
Most first-time visitors enjoy seeing it a lot. You can make it there for day-trips from Bern, but it is just a bit too far from Luzern. So I would say stay in Luzern if you want to visit the nearby mountains, lakes, and the cities in that area. Stay in Bern if you want to see the high peaks of the Oberland.
Both are lovely cities but Luzern has arguably more to see in the surrounding area than Bern. Bern - walk around the old town (beautiful and unusual architecture) see the Federal Parliament building, the Bear Park. Maybe visit the Art Museum or the Paul Klee Centre or the Communications museum.
The official language of Lucerne is German, but the main spoken language is the local variant of the Alemannic Swiss German dialect, Lucerne German.
Lucerne lies in the German speaking part of the country, where people speak a German dialect, so-called Swiss German or Schwyzerdütsch. A lot of Swiss speak English fairly well, especially the younger generation. So generally getting by in English is no problem.
