October 3 changes
As an attempt to expand this article, I've rewritten the introduction. I've also structured the History section a little which might help to expand that later, but for some reason the layout looks completely messed up in Firefox now. Maybe some more experienced Wiki guys can help here...? 184.108.40.206 12:19, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
The Hofkirche is described as a cathedral what is currently wrong, because Lucerne is part of the Diocese of Basel and the Bishop resides in Solothurn's St Ursen cathedral and not in Lucerne. But it is in my opinion very probable that the Hofkirche will once be a cathedral of an newly established Diocese whose Bishop will reside in Lucerne. Nevertheless I would change the article and describe the Hofkirche as church, but as church with big importance. Xerxes M.F October 2006
- I checked that in the cathedral article and it looks like the Hofkirche is indeed no cathedral by definition. I'll change that. PhilsCafe (talk) 19:30, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
Carnival in Lucerne
I'm just wondering why there is no entry about the carnival in lucerne. It's a real big thing all year. Check the german wiki: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luzerner_Fasnacht
Can someone add something about that under events?
Lucerne Cheese Festival notable?
Is the cheese festival really worth mentioning? I've never heard of it and IMO it's not notable, at least the picture seems pretty bold & lends it an even more important status... maybe I'm alone with this judgement? PhilsCafe (talk) 19:49, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
Perhaps the tone of the article could be massaged to read less like a travel brochure? It seems strange to find this in an encyclopedia:
I agree wholeheartedly. Much of this article sounds like commercial propaganda, heavy-handed and cloying. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who reacted that way. Sorry I don't have anything to contribute but complaints, but I know absolutely nothing about this subject, just how creepy reading about it here made me feel.Jim10701 (talk) 00:06, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
- Removed most of the Lucerne today section, only left the facts. Everything else is mentioned in the sights section, but with a much less tourist-agency sound to it. Tobyc75 (talk) 19:42, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
Two bridges - Kapellbrücke and Spreuerbrücke
The following sentence in the Lucerne today section references two bridges; however, only one bridge, the Kapellbrücke, is listed underneath.
Assuming that the other bridge is the Spreuerbrücke, how about merging the 3 paragraphs about Kapellbrücke into the discussion of the two bridges in the Sights section immediately following?
Since 2010 (merger with Littau) Lucerne has a population of 76,702 (http://www.lustat.ch/lustatnews_2010_10_07.pdf), not 59,509 as it says in the box on the right. please change that!
