This is a beautiful landmark in the city only a short walk from the train station and old town. It was very crowded on the Friday afternoon we were there in August so it was difficult to stop and admire the paintings along the rafters....More

The beautiful Chapel Bridge is known worldwide. The only problem these days are the crowds, Luzern just attracts too many tourists. A must see and walk across and then have a nice cup of coffee in one of the many street restaurants.

In traveled in September and the bridge was festooned with begonias. It was an amazing sight and a wonderful photo opportunity. I was amazed at how turquoise the waters were.

It’s situated right outside the Lucerne station and you can walk by the chapel bridge. It has its history. You can finish this activity in ten-fifteen minutes. Doesn’t require tickets. It’s right next to a lot of food joints.
