“Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

There are much better city walls in many other places. Here, the city walls are 2nd tier, and a bit harder than average to reach, and closed at both ends, and the views are simply not all that spectacular. It took some effort to do this attraction for not very much payoff.

“hard to find, and half of it is closed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

only two towers are open. and both ends are closed. it's hard to find, but once you get up, the views are amazing from one of the towers only. unfortunately big trees block the views from the other tower and the high parts of the wall. great to do though.

“Steep walk but good views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

The walk up to the remaining remnants of the city wall is a bit steep, but worth it for the views. One of the towers is a museum to the clocks of the city and a number of the old clock mechanisms from clocks around the town are on display, some still working. You can climb this tower to the top for great views. Then walk along the wall and marvel at how soldiers shot arrows through the small slits. Then climb back down a few towers later

“Impressive sight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

The view from the Lake Cruise points out the nine towers along the skyline - very interesting, and one of the many things to see in Lucerne

“Towers over Luzern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

We really enjoyed experiencing these towers. It is a bit of a hike but well worth it. The towers are really interesting. Be aware that there are lots of steep stairs when you go up inside. But the views along the wall are spectacular.
