This was a wooden bridge that takes you from downtown Luzern to an area with lots of shops & restaurants. Beautiful views and opportunity to see swans & ducks during the day & the lights at night. This is a must to do in Luzern.

From the altstadt this is an easy walk. Great way to get a different view of the city. And of course pictures that include the bridge are excellent! It is an quick walk across the bridge and gets you to the other side easily. The tiled roof is interesting to look at as you stroll through the bridge. We enjoyed... More

Located on Lake Lucern, it is the oldest standing covered bridge of Europe. It contains some old paintings depicting the life of Lucern in old ages. It is easily accessible by foot from the central train station Many birds can be seen in the surrounding lake Do check out for local musicians around

This is something you have to see in Lucerne. Luckily it's also something you pretty much can't avoid if you go near the city. The bridge is very beautiful and it's nice just to sit at one of the bars watching the world go by. The paintings which line the interior are an interesting bonus we didn't expect.

In it's easy, central location, a stone's throw from the railway station and the old town, the Kapelbrucke is the place to start your visit to Lucerne. Lovely any time, but especially pretty during Summer when bedecked in flowers.

This is a pretty famous landmark of Lucerne and one must take the time to admire the simple beauty from the outside of the bridge as well as while crossing it. Take a stroll across the bridge and remember to look up at the amazing artwork and take in the view.

This attraction is pleasing to stroll along while serving as an expedient means to traverse from the Jesuits church to the old market square in Lucern. Many of the arches have decorative painting worth marveling. Enjoy the scene, while strolling across the river.

The area of the Chapel Bridge is the heart of the town. plenty of restaurants and cafes are there. You can jest set there and enjoy the view and spot. the bridge connects the old city with the new for pedestrians.

Beautiful piece of architecture. One of the oldest bridge and made completely of woods. Located in the center of the city and visited by all people.
