Luzerners rejoice there will be a Fasnacht in 2021! How it will take place, however, is as yet unknown. It seems likely that large parades will not be taking place and that it will be more focused on neighbourhood celebrations instead of meeting in one area (downtown). One thing for sure is that masks will be mandatory!
For some of us autumn heralds the joy of going mushroom picking, however Lucerne has strict rules including not picking mushrooms in the first 7 days of the month. This looks like it might be about to change with parliament saying that it is considering doing away with this rule. You can read more about the rules with regards to mushroom picking here.
Dreaming of getting your Swiss nationality but put off by the CHF 1700.- it costs? If you live in Lucerne and are under 25 then you will be pleased to know that as of 2021 that fee will be waived.
Remember that this Saturday is Shop Local Day in Lucerne. Local stores will be celebrating the day with tasting, readings and workshops so be sure to head downtown and support our local businesses.
