Pleasant and very beautiful with colourful flower displays on the side of the bridge. and well worth spending some time when in Lucerne.
I was so fascinated that when I surfed the net I found out that the Kapellbrücke (literally, Chapel Bridge) is across the Reuss River in the city of Lucerne. There were some lovely eateries on the riverside.

Excellent to view from the banks of the river or adjoining bridges but the walk over the bridge itself is fairly uninteresting - some historical depictions of Swiss history and Lucerne and an obligatory shop. The fine floral decoration of the bridge enhances it no end. The similar bridge further inland across the river is much less iconic (it has no floral decor). Anyhow the Kapellbrucke is a "must do".

Our hotel was close to Chappel Bridge, so we made a point to visit this landmark. The bridge is beautiful. The flowers that are planted around the outside of the bridge make it even more charming to its visitors.

The bridge always has loads of people on it. Regardless, find a spot that you like, and take in the view.

The only reason I subtracted a star from this attraction was due to the gift shop located in the middle of the bridge. I dislike tourist traps like that. If it were up to me, I'd leave the landmark stand on its own and leave the charm untouched by commercialism.

Lovely wooden bridge. so unusual both in shape and constuction. Worth a visit and good short cut over the river. Pedestrian only.

Our hotel and the old town lucerne had the chapel bridge in between. With its picturesque view, it is easily one of the best tourist attractions. Swans and ducks swim about, gracing the waters. Wonderful sight.
