Interesting.

Important part of the town, it is worth doing a tour to learn of the history of the town and the cute quirks that have happened over the years.

The Chapel Bridge is quite small and maybe the lack of flowers (it was the beginning of spring) made it look quite ordinary. But the view from the bridge is fantastic.

Walked across the bridge several times and saw the paintings near the roof inside. Saw the ones burned by the fire in 1993 caused by someone throwing cigarette onto small boat tied near bridge.

Definitely worth the walk across the river. Cool murals, great views of some beautiful buildings and area in general. If you are in old town just go see it they have seating if you need to sit before completing walking across.

The bridge has pictures in the trusses and tells stories of the town. It also has some of the best look out and photo spots.

Even though I have spent much of my life shaking my head at the hoardes of tourists clicking away on their cameras or cellphone, I have to admit, that at least once a month, I take a stroll down this awesome bridge and listen to my footsteps echo on the wood. It is a holistic experience ( sight, sound, smell... More

The entire city of Lucerne is so beautiful that one can spend a lifetime here. Conversations with your beloved on a quite evening by the lake, a stroll down the bridge and a coffee at the lake side is the best time one can spend. You would love it
