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.

With so much to see in Luzern, the one must-do sight is this climb along the medieval walls and clocktowers of the old town, which offer the most sweeping views of the town and the soaring Alpine peaks surrounding it. We entered by the path...More

Museggmauer area was my favorite part of Lucerne. Not only do you get to climb the historical fortress and see the city from above, there's also a charming farm right next to it with pastoral views. Serene and beautiful.

Had a walk & chanced upon this spot... went up on a hot afternoon & it's quite a long flight of stairs to go up to the top. However, the stairs were well-made with rails for you to hold on. Once you reach the top,...More

A nice walk from the main plaza, Museggmauer wows you with its pretty architecture in a leafy & quiet area!

Great place to visit if you are in the area. Good views from top of the wall. A bit of a hike but well worth it.

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
