It was pleasant to take a walk around the wall and towers. You can view mountain and city from top. I would highly recommend to take a walk around.

We visited a couple of the towers as we wandered around old town Lucern. They have done a great job of preserving these historic structures. And it's free to visit!

Interesting towers and great views,but surprisingly few people. We were often the only ones in the towers, so we were able to move at our own pace. After exploring the towers we walked back along the river and looked at the weirs.

Great way to experience Lucerne, the lake and the Alps. 9 towers are part of wall protecting old town, each different but in their totality a great experience

Worth a visit, not always easy to find or to climb but great views of the area. Take your camera. It was hot whilst we were there so even more exhausting.

Up a hill at the back of the town. A good stroll from the city. These formed part of the wall that protected the city many centuries ago and there are informative signs all along the pathway.

The towers are positioned so that you can look out over the whole of Lucerne and across the lake to the castles. Long climb.We only went up three of the towers
