On Tuesdays and Saturdays, a special experience is available in Lucerne, Switzerland. On the banks of Lake Lucerne, both sides – rain or shine(!) – have a beautiful farmers market each week. The Saturday market is significantly larger than Tuesdays. While there are many delights to discover, the late summer FLOWERS are absolutely amazing!

Thankfully, tomato-cream soup, a freshly baked croissant and French wine nourish and delight : ) Thank you, Manor Department Store!

Travel Tip!!  In any city, find a nice department store and double-check if they have a rooftop or upper story cafe – it’s worked for me many times! They often have views and/or outdoor patio dining! From the rooftop patio of a department store, the lovely, stormy skies of Lucerne loom dramatically!
