This was not my favorite shopping place in our trip. It was a neat area but nothing extremely special. I say see some of the other places around Lucerne and don’t waste time walking around for not much.

This is a great place to walk through especially during this wonderful time of Xmas markets. The vibe as well as the alcohol is all around and the people seems happy. So did my spouse and myself.

Its a nice area just to walk about, take in the local shops. You dont have to buy, but window shopping can be fun. Oh and dont forget sit and have a coffee.

Its just a marketplace - now defunct. Part of the old town, so nice to walk around in. Maybe we missed something, and shd have seen it with a guide. Right next almost to the chapel Bridge (which is truly nice)

There was some festival going on and everyone was celebrating. The World Cup was on so maybe that’s was happening? In any case it was a fun to shop and there was even street food.

This is worth a visit because it combines the old and new city and worth stopping for a bite to eat or stop to shop

Kornmarkt is in the Old Town very close to Chapel Bridge and the river. The buildings are very colorful and a great area to walk around.

I meandered through the streets with a tour group. The streets were packed the first afternoon we arrived with tourists which surprised me. However it was much more quiet the next day thankfully. The cobbled streets were charming, but they could present some challenges coupled...More

About 10-15 minutes. Make sure to have your camera at the ready, there are some beautiful opportunities for great shots as you walk that way. Enjoy
