I walked across the Chapel Bridge during a visit to Lucerne, it is constructed mostly from wood, there are still some signs of fire damage. There is much interesting artwork on the bridge. There is a souvenir shop located at the base of the tower....More

This is a very famous sight in Luzern. The architecture of the bridge is lovely and it spreads diagonally across the Reuss river. It is a solid wood covered footbridge decorated with some amazing old paintings which are very well maintained. Definitely and must see.

There are two of these old wooden bridges one is older than its sibling You can walk across them for free and well worth doing so Plenty of excellent restaurants very close by (next to it) for great food & drink

We slowly walked across the bridge. Many interesting sites to see. Plus there are some painting on the bridge to see. The bridge has been repaired from the fire they had several years ago. Some of the paintings have not been replaced.

This is the archetypal postcard view of Lucerne and is very pretty, especially in summer, when the swans are out.

Lucerne is a pristine Swiss city and its Kapellbrücke (Chapel Bridge) looks like something out of your fantasy daydreams of what Switzerland is supposed to look like. It's a landmark that anchors the city and it's free. Hard to beat a tourist attraction that's not...More
