If you are like me, you like to climb towers across Europe. Well, here are three more to climb. There are no restrictions on admission, and no cost. Climb the towers, walk the walls, or sit on a bench and relax. It is all there....More

Walking up to and along this wall was a fun and scenic thing to do, but beware; it does take some exertion, especially if you are out of shape like me. The towers have a lot of very steep stairs, so caution is advised. But...More

We stumbled upon the towers/wall after wandering the Old Towne. It was fun walking across the medieval walls. Not many people were up there even on a clear summer day. The views and experience were a nice break from the tour groups in the city.

While access to this old wall is free, tourists hardly try to miss this out as it offers a scenic view of the entire Lucerne. Although a bit tricky to find, walking around the seemingly empty streets, a little farther away from the crowded alleyways...More

It takes some effort to climb the steep hill to the entrance to the ramparts, but you will be rewarded with great views over the city. One of the towers has a clock and there is a miniature version on display at visitor level.

The old wall structure with high towers is the remains of the city wall. It looks well preserved and surrounding apartments blend well with it.

Excellent view of the city from the old city walls and towers. A bit of an up hill walk to get there with extreme stairs in the towers to reach the walls.

I had a little time to kill with my tour group before our organized tour so we decided to visit the wall. It felt good to walk and breath in the fresh air after a morning of travel. The views from the top were really...More

The heat made it a little difficult when we were there, but it was not strenuous. Lots of places to rest along the way. At some of the towers you have the option to go up the ladders/stairs and while the views and clockworks... More
