“We had spent 10 days in Lucern and we had had such a great time. Apartment is very comfy and nicely designed, with an amazing view and beautiful garden in a quiet district just 10 min walk from the centre. Lucern is a lovely city, not too crowded, beautiful and historical but for us the most important was a quick access (30 min drive) to some amazing mountains and skiing spots :). Our hosts were very helpful and exchanging some emails with them was also a pleasure. We'd love to do it again.”

“We had a wonderful exchange with this family in Apr 2012. Ula, Joe and their children were extremely nice and welcomed us with a very good dinner. Their house is spacious, very well located to visit Lucern's main attractions and has a beautiful view on several mountains. Furthermore, Ula and Joe gave us a lot of advices ahead of the exchange to help us planning our stay. They prepared a list of things to do with our children depending on the weather, etc. This was extremely helpful. Last but not least, they took great care of our apartment. We strongly recommend the Rothstein family. Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine à Lucerne en Avril 2012. Nous avons eu la chance de rencontrer la famille autour d'un diner très sympathique et de bénéficier de leurs bons conseils pour visiter Lucerne et ses environs avec nos enfants. La maison est très agréable, lumineuse, avec une merveilleuse vue sur les montagnes. Le vieux Lucerne est facilement accessible à pied ou en bus, la gare également. Lucerne est une ville très jolie, avec plein d'activités possibles, en montagne, sur le lac, dans ses musées, etc... et les villes comme Zurich ou Bern sont très faciles d'accès en train pour une excursion d'une journée. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour, eu des échanges fructueux avec Joe et Ula pour préparer nos vacances. A notre retour, nous avons vu qu'ils avaient pris soin de notre appartement. Nous recommandons vivement la famille pour les échanges d'appartements!”
“We have spent two weeks in Luzern at this house. It’s very comfortable, clean and spacious, with all the facilities you may need and a really nice view of the mountains and the city itself. It has a great garden to enjoy the nice weather and it’s conveniently located in a lovely neighbourhood and very near a bus stop that takes you to the city centre. We have also exchanged cars which makes more remarkable the fact that it is also conveniently located to take the motorway that takes you to Bern (west), Basel (north) or Zurich (east). Before the exchange Joe sent us very helpful information about the house and activities and daytrips we could do. So planning our holidays was extremely easy. They looked after our house and car with care. We are really happy with this exchange and with this trustworthy family so we highly recommend any exchange with them.”
“We enjoyed a wonderful exchange with these family from Luzern during the last two weeks of July 2014. Their home was perfect for our family of 5... clean, bright, well stocked kitchen, and yes, a breathtaking view of the Alps. We loved listening to the cathedral bells outside the dining room window. The home was a lovely home away from home while we explored the area using our family Swiss Pass. The location could not have been better. These family were generous with a car swap too which allowed us to also visit Munich and Salzburg. We enjoyed meeting Joe, Ula, Max and Ania at the beginning of our exchange period. They are a lovely family and made our stay so comfortable by providing thorough information about their home and surrounding areas. We emailed them with several questions and Joe always responded in a timely manner with answers to our questions. If you have plans to visit Switzerland, I highly recommend an exchange with Joe and his family.”
“It was our first exchange experience and it has been one of our best trips we have had lately. The Rothstein's family in Geneve Switzerland have a very beautiful house in one of the best areas of Geneve, in a nice and quiet neigbourhood, surrounded by green trees and very near of the centre of Geneve and the Leman Lake. We have had such a great time in their house so cosy, well decorated, well equiped. We recommend strongly this exchange for they are a trustful family and also because there are a lot of interesting experiences to do in Geneve city and in the area. We will always remember them and their home with in our hearts.”
“We were at Joe and Ula’s house in Luzern in July. They are very kind and helped us with all we needed. They gave us some very useful advice: How to travel cheaper around with children with the swiss pass,... Their area is beautiful with a lot of interesting things and cities to see and visit. Everywhere our children found playgrounds and activities to do. We had a great time, especially in the mountains Pilatus and Titlis, with rack trains, telecabins and chairlifts (which was a new experience for us). The transport really works very well and you can easily move around the area. Joe and his family are very nice and they took care of our house very well. We highly recommend an exchange with them.”
“After exchanging with Joe\'s house, Luzern, my wife and I can say that his place is very charming. The apartment is in an old house immersed in a magnificent garden close to down town, it is furnished in a modern and functional way, has spacious rooms and comfortable; it is completely in line with the description that is made on the web site. About Luzern can be said to be a hospitable and graceful city, as well as being barycentric to hiking in other Swiss cities such as Bern, Zurich, Interlaken and so on, and to reach the highest mountains in Switzerland. The dialogue with Joe was friendly and pleasant. I strongly suggest exchanging with him.”
“Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour à Luzern. Depuis le balcon vous avez une très belle vue sur le mont Pilatus. Le Duplex est très confortable. Nous avons apprécié le contact avec la famille.”
“We would highly recommend an exchange with Joe and his family. They live in a very nice attic in Luzern. Its very near the town center (around 15 minutes walk to the train station) Luzern is a very beautiful city with plenty of things to do. We did have a wonderful time there. On the other hand, we must also say that they treated our home very well and did what we asked them to do. Jose and Ana”
“In April 2011 we had a very nice home exchange with the Rothstein family in Luzern. They own a luxurious and very clean apartment in the suburbs, with a superb view on the Alps and the beautiful Vierwaldstaettersee. Our kids loved playing with the toys in the house. With a direct bus that stops right in front of the house you can reach the city center within ten minutes. The Rothsteins did some perfect suggestions for daytrips: we reached the top of Mount Pilatus riding the steepest cogwheel train in the world, we enjoyed an afternoon at the small beach and we visited the splendid Verkehrshaus, a very expansive transportation museum. It was a lovely experience.”
Where is it?
Our apartment is in a very quiet section of Luzern, 3 minute walk from the bus stop (we are up a bit of a hill, but not terribly difficult walk) which takes you to the main train station, the center of Luzern in 7 minutes. 10 minute walk to shopping (or 2 bus stops), very nice quiet neighborhood. Luzern is an excellent location for exploring central Switzerland, an hour by train to Bern, Basel, and Zurich.
