5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

We enjoyed our walk to the City Wall and the climb up into the Tower. We were rewarded with an awesome view of the entire city.

“Panoramic views of Lucerne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

The nine towers are part of the old city wall of Lucerne that dates back to Roman times. They are worth a visit, but you need to be in good shape to be able to walk up a steep hill and several levels of stairs. You can access the actual wall at three towers, and walk along the wall between the towers. You are rewarded with a panoramic view of the old city, Lake Lucerne, and the homes dotting the hills surrounding the city.

“Fun Walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

This was a really fun walk and gave you great views of the city! You should start at the tower that is next to the river and work your way across and you'll end up in the old town.

“Towers are closed in the winter”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

We wanted to take in the view of Luzern that the tower presented but we disappointed when we discovered that they were closed until Easter (April). Otherwise it is still worth a quick visit as they are still interesting from ground level.

“Good views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

Well worth the climb through the picturesque old town to see the wall and towers up close. We were especially pleased to discover the huge wall painting of the Wilden Mann which was the name of the hotel where we were staying. It was a clear bright day and from the height we had splendid views down to the lake and across the city.
