Walk along the city ramparts and climb the towers for exquisite views of the city. Luzern is one of my favorite Swiss cities and aside from the iconic Kappelbrucke, this is what I tell all my friends is a must do. The lesser known (and completely original and just as beautiful) Spreuerbrucke (bridge) is nearby.

Lucerne doesn't have a lot of differents things in comparison to another city in Switzerland. However, I've never seen something like that: part of the ancient wall, conserving towers!....Highly recommendable.

The towers are great pieces of beautifully preserved history. Yes there are a lot of steps/stairs to use if you want to go to the top of the towers and walk along the wall. Just imagine the people back in those times doing that on a regular basis. Being in the towers, reading about them, reading about the old clocks and viewing the inner workings of the clocks was worth the exercise in my opinion.

I really enjoyed exploring the nine towers. I went with my elderly parents, both in their 70s, they found some sections of the walk quiet hard due to the steep hill and number of steps. However if you are younger and reasonably fit you will have no problems.
