We walked up to the wall on a day that was a bit foggy, but it was worth it. We were practically the only ones there. We still had a great view of the city, and the wall itself. Very nice.

Lovely place to admire the Towers on the wall and views of Lucerne. A must see and free of charge. It is uphill, but of course you come back down again. Easy access with wide paths.

Your imagination takes you back 800 years to a time when this city required fortification. The towers and wall are in remarkable shape and stand very tall to keep out the invaders. It can be seen best from the far side of the footbridge.

We walked along and entered as many of the towers as we were able and took in the sights along the wall. There are also shops and restaurants along the way to stop in for refreshments.

We walked along the wall but were not able to get in as it was closed for the winter. Still, there were great views of the city.

Its an up hill walk, and towers and steps to climb, if you take it slow, its a perfect day to wonder and lose yourself.

Free of charge. Climbed up many of the towers. Quite hard as steps are steep and your legs will know you did climb.. Views great, you see the lake and from the farthest tower also riverside quite well.
