Decided to walk part of the walls of Lucerne. After getting up to the entry point a sign informed me that the wall is only open in summer. Disappointed as most of the tourist information and information on Tripadvisor did not indicate it was closed....More

Was mistakenly told this would be open, but it wasn't open. Infact it's closed during the winter season. We walked along side the towers, it is a nice walk. Would of been nice to have walked across the top. Next time I guess.

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
