A beautiful and different view of Luzern; it is on the hill, so despite a bit of light exercise, the panorama over the town is a generous reward. The Zytturm is closed over the winter months (we went in February) so keep that in mind...More

We had a nice (panting) walk up to the wall but the views and the history was well worth it. There is a nice trail (though careful in February - it was warm out, but in the shadow, it was still a little icy. The...More

Of the towers, 4 are open to the public and you are able to climb wooden staircases to the tops of some to get a great view of Lucerne.

This is a nice walk, something free to do, great views of the city. Take your time. Wander up one way and wander down another.

We only went for a walk because it's near our hotel. I actually didn't know that it's also a famous attraction in Luzern. It's a nice walk.

These celebrated city walls with their nine towers form part of the historic fortifications built around Lucerne from the 13th century and are very well preserved. It was quite steep to get up to the top but well worthwhile as the views from up here...More
