Day 19: Mt. Pilatus - Lucerne - Mt. Pilatus

Mt. Pilatus
Early morning when I woke up, I opened up the window and I saw snow... Yes, snow in the autumn. So I quickly freshen up and went out to take some photos before the breakfast.

I'm the only one who wears slippers in this kind of weather ;)

Lucerne (Luzern)
Eventhough Swiss is famous for their watches, but it is much more expensive here than in Singapore for the same brand and model. Even Swatch is cheaper in Singapore.

Most souvenir shops sell Swiss Army knives, they have quite a lot of models which I never get to see before.

The Nine Towers
The old city wall have nine towers, three of them can be climbed. Up here, we could get the city view of Lucerne.

Lion monument

Instead of taking a cable car back to Mt. Pilatus, we had a chance to try the cog train. It is the steepest railway in the world.
