The celebrated city walls with their nine towers form part of the historic fortifications built around Lucerne from the 13th century. The wall is still almost entirely intact.

 

 

Four of the Musegg Towers are open to the public; the Zytturm in particular, is well worth a visit, for it houses the city’s oldest clock, built in 1535 by one Hans Luter. It is allowed to chime every hour one minute before all the city’s other clocks.

LUCERNE PEARL OF SWITZERLAND 

 

Thanks to its impressive mountain panorama, its lakeside setting, its charming historic centre and accessibility to limitless excursions, Lucerne (Luzern in German) has become a very prominent destination of the Swiss Alps.

 

 

The impressive medieval Chapel Bridge forms the centrepiece of Lucerne’s townscape and is considered to be one of the oldest covered wooden bridges in Europe.

Lucerne city espresses its beauty through its squares, churches, well maintained historic town houses, decorated with frescoes and a romantic car-free centre.

 

A magic historical center with the most beautiful bridge of the Alps

 

Here, tradition and modernity stand side-by-side, as the town has also earned itself a reputation for innovative design. The futuristic Culture and Convention Centre (KKL), designed by leading French architect Jean Nouvel, is one the architectural highlights of the town. The KKL is also the landmark for the «Lucerne: Festival City», a venue which organizes a wide variety of cultural events throughout the year.


Lucerne is the ideal starting point for many excursions to the highlights of central Switzerland. A trip up one of Lucerne’s regional mountains, the Pilatus or the Rigi – the queen of mountains – is a must. That said, an adventure up the Stanserhorn, the Bürgenstock or a steamship cruise on Lake Lucerne with its many bends would be equally thrilling.

THE KAPELLBRUCKE BRIDGE SYMBOL OF LUCERNE

 

Lucern's landmark is considered to be Europe's oldest covered bridge. It was built in the 14th Century and was originally a part of the city’s fortification.

 

 

The paintings, added in the 17th Century, illustrate scenes of Swiss and local history, including the biographies of the city's patron saints, St. Leodegar and St. Maurice.

The Kapellbrucke, the most romantic and beautiful bridge of the Alps

 

Much of the bridge and artwork were destroyed in the 1993 fire, but it was promptly restored. The Water Tower, a 43 mt tall octagonal brick tower, is adjacent to the bridge.

 

In the past the tower served as a prison, torture chamber, watchtower and treasury for the city. Today the tower is a part of the city wall and is used as a club room by a local association.

The tower and bridge are symbols of Lucern and are the most photographed monuments in the country.
