The Old Town Record Store
Of all the places we've been to in Switzerland, I think Lucerne is the one that has the most diverse culture. They say that it is a nexus of economics, transportation, culture, and media. What I found fascinating was the mix of 20th century and 19th century culture. For instance, this record store still sells vinyl records. I didn't buy any because my player was broken but I did purloin some stickers to decorate my luggage.
And then there is Stadtkeller, where we went to one night, is a music restaurant in the city's old town where entertainers sing folk songs and invite the audience to do the chicken dance and blow the Alpinehorn. I was fortunate not to be chosen to do that. I was put onstage however to yodel. The hostess thought my name was Alan for whatever reason. I didn't correct her in case I embarrassed myself.
Hope your day goes well.
