The town is small, but has a lot of shops and different things jammed into it, not in a bad way but a huge variety. nice for a walk around for a hour or so.
I love losing myself in old towns, and this one was no exception. The shops were all unique and inviting. Plenty of stuff to see and buy, along with nice little cafes to relax and people watch. The old town is near the Dying Lion place, so probably plan to do them both in the same afternoon.
This is one of the best old towns in swiss. The churches are beautiful. The walk across these streets gives such a pleasure. The houses across the street remind of roman times.
Not only the town but also the people are helpful and courteous. Ther are some magnificent old buildings which look wonderful in the Xmas lights. If you know the place a bit you can also find a cosy restaurant to eat at a fair price. The wooden bridge is still worh a visit even if it caught fire some time... More
You must go into Old Town and just walk around. Many old buildings with Paintings and where William Tells house is. Beautiful-lots of shopping but Switzerland is very expensive. Also go see the statue of the Lion!
I found the Old Town Lucern is charming. Peaceful atmosphere and beautiful painting outside some of the building façade. I would join a tour to study more about these painting if have chance to go there again.
if you have been in another city of Switzerland (Bern for example), the old town is not the best thing that you've ever seen. However, I was quite impressed for the wall of the city, that I think I've never seen something like that before.
It has still retained its medieval charm and yet maintained very well, to the level of a pristine replica of olden times. I would recommend having a coffee in one of the various cafes on the river/lakeside in the mid morning on a weekday with your partner. We had the swiss pass which allowed us to get a free boat...

We walked the streets of the old town a group was playing pleasant music in the street , the shops had every thing you need but expensive. For a couple who come from a Country that only has 230 years of white man history to see buildings and bridges as old as these was fantastic.
