Interlaken OST, Switzerland – 7th day (06.09.12)

Today is one of the most memorable in our European trip.  We are heading to Interlaken OST – is a municipality in the Interlaken-Oberhasli administrative district in the Canton of Bern in Switzerland, a well-known tourist destination in the Bernese Oberland.

We took our breakfast before heading to Lucerne train terminal.

Lion Monument is a sculpture in LucerneSwitzerland. It commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution. The American writer Mark Twain (1835–1910) praised the sculpture of a mortally-wounded lion as “the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world.

Start of the Musegg Walls.  his is a series of nine towers that are part of the rampart walls that surround the city. They span approximately 800m around the city.
Built in 1386, the wall stands almost entirely intact due to the fact that Lucerne was never really under any harm, thanks to its strategic location amongst the Alps.
