This massive outdoor party is full of music and jubilation. Oversized characters in elaborate costumes and masks wander through the streets. On the last night of the festival, "Fat Tuesday", the entire city is adorned with lights and lanterns. At the end of the giant parade, all of the bands wander through the streets of Lucerne playing their music as loudly as they can in the revelry of the festival.

The inside of Chapel Bridge offers some fantastic 17th-century paintings. The natural surroundings of Lake Lucerne give the bridge and the surrounding area a soulful tranquillity.
If you are visiting Lucerne during the summer there are plenty of outdoor activities that you can enjoy. One of the most rewarding is the "Golden Round Trip." Take a drive down to the lake where you can board a boat that will take you across beautiful Lake Lucerne to the base of Mt. Pilatus. From there you can ride the cogwheel railway up the side of the mountain to the summit. There is a large complex at the top of which provides an unforgettable scenic overlook with a panoramic view, so be sure to bring your camera.
After staying a while at the summit, you can take the panoramic gondola back down the cableway to the base of the mountain. Here, catch a bus that will take you back to your car.
