«What a wonderful backdrop: in front of us the Hotel Schweizerhof, the 5-star hotel, one of the city’s top addresses. In the background the lake, the KKL, the mountains. And while the heat of the day is still oppressive, dark clouds are already brewing together in the sky, promising cooler temperatures. The atmosphere is unique.
Up on stage in front of the hotel is Bastian Baker [...]. People who just happened to be walking past the Schweizerhof have also stopped to listen to the young man. Many hotel guests who have been listening to the concert from their balconies are clapping along and waving to the audience below. [...]
«In summer Lucerne is quite unique,» says a local passer-by. The young man is standing in front of the Schweizerhof, beaming. Unprompted, he adds: «You don’t need to go on holiday if you live here.»
