Of the towers, 4 are open to the public and you are able to climb wooden staircases to the tops of some to get a great view of Lucerne.

This is a nice walk, something free to do, great views of the city. Take your time. Wander up one way and wander down another.

We only went for a walk because it's near our hotel. I actually didn't know that it's also a famous attraction in Luzern. It's a nice walk.

These celebrated city walls with their nine towers form part of the historic fortifications built around Lucerne from the 13th century and are very well preserved. It was quite steep to get up to the top but well worthwhile as the views from up here...More

We walked/climbed Museggmauer on our last day in Lucerne. We thought the views were second only to our Mt. Pilatus experience -- fantastic! There is a climb up to the wall itself which connects four of the towers. If you want to climb the towers,...More

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

The good thing about walls is that they lead you to their gate. Follow a road up towards the wall, follow the sidewalks that inevitably lead you to the entrance.

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
