While in the old town of Lucerne, if you’re looking for an activity to do why not have dinner and a Swiss folkshow in Stadkeller.
It may be touristy and not an authentic Swiss folkshow, but I really enjoyed the format of the show and how they would invite people in to participate!
There were the musical performances using different local instruments…
This one is called the Alphorn.. They actually asked for people who wanted to volunteer to try this instrument out.. I was so excited I immediately asked to try.. However its harder than it looks.. after several attempts I couldn’t make a decent sound come out of this! Embarassing since I was the only one of the volunteers who couldn’t make it play 😦
And the night ended with everyone forming a dancing line
There was a lot of audience participation all throughout the night, which made it more enjoyable since we weren’t just sitting watching. Overall a good experience to know more of Swiss culture 😀
The cost of the dinner and folkshow was around 45 CHF per person.. But we felt the price was well worth it, a nice end to our first day here =)
