MUSEGG WALL

THE MUSEGG WALL OF LUCERNE

 

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.

 

A medieval feeling, discovering the historic fortifications of Lucerne


From the three publicly accessible towers you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city and the lake.
