We took the self guided walking tour in Lucerne and marveled at this bridge. During our visit there was snow falling which made the views even more spectacular. What a beautiful city.

Good view from the chapel bridge. Took some selfies with nice back ground. The bridge will take to the other side of town.

This bridge is one of the things that makes Luzern unique. It's a treasure! One of the few places I can unwind and truly feel like a kid again. And for that, no amount of stars is enough to give Kapellbrücke the rating it deserves!

A beautiful 14th century bridge located centrally in Lucerne, spanning the Reuss and passes the old water tower. The bridge is covered with triangular shaped art depicting local history and biographies of Patron saints. Unfortunately some of these were destroyed in a fire at one time. The views of Lucerne are wonderful from this beautiful old bridge and makes for... More

In the heart of town, the covered bridge has many piece of art work on each of the trusses. It is a nice leisurely stroll across the bridge to the old part of the City. The view of both the new and old cities and the lake is quite beautiful.

The Chapel Bridge is iconic to Lucerne and an absolutely 'must see' attraction. We walked over it during the evening, when it was lit up. Great atmosphere and close to all the bars and restaurants. Not be missed

This is definitely the best thing to be seen in the city - it has an interesting history, very beautiful pictures inside, great panorama view of the lake and opportunity for nice pictures. Do not miss the souvenir shop in the middle - they have a variety of choice and it is not more expensive than other places.
