The walk of the wall and towers in Lucerne is worth it for the visit to the Zytturm (the Clock Tower). There is a museum of sorts inside this tower that houses a collection of old clocks and clockworks. The view from the top of the tower is great. Make sure to check out the fresco on the outside wall of the clock tower.

Like others mentioned, the clock tower is especially fascinating! And being on the walkway on the walls provides views of the city you cannot find elsewhere. At the time of this review, two of the towers are closed due to renovation work going on and only 4 open to the public. Each tower is is uniquely different. Great excercise!

Yes this is the old city wall and guard towers but they provide a great view of the lake and city. The clock tower is especially worthwhile with several historic clocks in operational order.

The walk along the top of the tower is quite high and the steps up the towers seem a bit dodgy!

This is not for those afraid of heights.

Just a plain wall with lot of walking and climbing. Didn't find it worth visiting. Waste of time walking on the wall.

Wonderful views of Lucerne from the connecting walk up along the towers. Only 2 were open to us; 2 were having work done on them. Of the 9 Towers, normally there are 4 open to the public. No charge.
