Gletschergarten Reflections


MirrorMaze1

It was back to work for us today, sort of…. in the nicest of ways. One of our prime purposes for coming to Switzerland was to photograph the historic mirror maze at the Gletschergarten in Lucerne.

Built in 1896, the maze was originally constructed at the Swiss National Exhibition in Zurich, then moved and reassembled in its present location in 1899. As delightful as ever, it is still in very good condition, and is obviously popular with both locals and tourists.

And when the work was finished, we had time to play with the kaleidoscope mirrors.

Lovely Luzern

After a morning of wandering around Zurich, we took the train down to Luzern (Lucerne) to continue our Swiss adventure.

The city is lovely, but touristy and crowded, even this late in the season. Tomorrow we’ll be back on our labyrinth quest, but today was simply about exploring.
