How is it Emmenbrücke

Does anyone live or ever lived in Emmenbrücke? How is this area? Is it safe, is it a lively area?

Drove through a few times. Looked like a comparably poor and diverse place, and I saw nothing that would have made me want to live there.

Re: How is it Emmenbrücke

Can you tell me what are the areas that aren't shady in Luzern? The rent price is a good filter, but can you name some areas?

Re: How is it Emmenbrücke

it is safe as most of the places in Switzerland
It is not lively as most places in the Switzerland are not. Note on this:
- you can maybe count the old part of Luzern as a lively town, but even this part is more a ghost town after dark. Except during the Fasnacht when it's simply better to leave the place if you are not extreme fan of Fasnacht

Emmenbrücke, or more the whole part of geimende Emmen used to be a place of strong industry. Now part of it is already transformed into residential or service areas. More is to follow. There are plans to revitalize different areas with more or less resident friendly programs. There is nice green area at the confluence of rivers.



You can read something about the geinde here.


btw the only shady part I can imagine is Horw, as it is in the shade of mt. Pilatus most of the time. Otherwise is full of watchful neighbors.

Re: How is it Emmenbrücke

I have found shady Emmenbrücke because it has a lot of people that you look at it, and be afraid. I was afraid of walking in that area in the evening. It is definitely not a welcoming neighborhood. I am not saying that people are bad there. I don't have any issues with any kind of religion, nationality, and so on, but I felt quite uncomfortable in that place.

I don't want to bash this country because it has nice views and wonderful chocolate. But I start to get the feeling that this is not a welcoming country, and it is full of crazy people.

That is bashing the country

No, it is not. If someone can't take a critique, that is their problem. If you don't agree with me, tell in which neighborhood do you live. I would love to go live there.

Crazy is not the adjective most people would use to describe Swiss people.

Re: How is it Emmenbrücke

Maybe you are more the type for Kastanienbaum, Meggen, Risch, or Immensee. If all that fails, I think Bürgenstock has serviced Apartments.

I guess welcoming and solidarity are also not used.

Re: How is it Emmenbrücke

And do make sure to check out which area has the best dance school where you don't have to pay upfront. You never did explain how you went from missing 2 months of lessons to only 4 out of 10 instead starting numerous other nonsense threads

Re: How is it Emmenbrücke

@Mr Dog, you are right. It is 2 months, and not 4 lessons. That is my mistake.

Nevertheless, what I wanted to point out is that IMHO it should be better to pay monthly leisure activities, and not everything in advance. Of course, I cannot do anything to recover the lost money. But, I also could not find another dancing school that allows monthly payments, yet.

I'm sure he's the troll aka justinthexpat and the other guy who claimed he was from Sweden. You get wise to the way the posts are written and what they're about.

I am more of a normal middle-class person.

In that case you are stuck with Emmenbrücke. These are dangerous streets for us upper-lower-middle-class types. So avoid eye contact, watch your pocketbook, and suspect everyone.

In Luzern itself, the most "desirable" bits are probably on the hillside up above the old town. That's where you get the best views, but they come at a hefty price. Not much up there in the way of shops or restaurants either. There is also a very nice residential area (old houses with leafy gardens) up above Obergrundstrasse, on the slopes of the Sonnenberg.

On the other side of the river from the old town, the Neustadt/Hirschmatt area is cheaper, but you don't get the views unless you have one of those roof terraces. Lots of nice early 20th-century houses, lots of cafés, restaurants and independent shops. Same for Bruchstrasse and the surrounding streets.

if you don't mind being a bit further out but still very much in Luzern; Kriens, Horw, and Ebikon all have nice residential areas. Nothing wrong with Emmenbrücke and Littau, although maybe less attractive than those places I would say.

I'm not sure there is really anywhere in Luzern that I would call shady... Baselstrasse and the streets around it don't have a great reputation, sandwiched in between the railway and the hillside, but I wouldn't describe them as shady.
