This is a stunning bridge in Lucerne on the lake. It is covered in beautiful flowers and is very colorful in the spring and the summer and covered in snow in the winter. Worth a visit any time of the year.

גשר עץ נחמד עם היסטוריה. לא יותר מזה. מומלץ בעיקר לחובבי היסטוריה. אבל העיר נחמדה בפניה עצמה. a nice wooden bridge, with a history. not more than that. recommended mostly for history lovers. the city is nice though

Chapel Bridge is right in the centre of town and easily accessible via foot, bus, train or car. It is a lovely walk across the old bridge - and it has a wheelchair lift at each end to navigate the stairs for the disabled. Try it at night - it is all light up and looks adorable. In the centre...

You have to take your time doing the bridge and take a Camera. Many of the panels were lost but there are still plenty to see regardless of the time of year. Parts look to have been replaced but done in true keeping with the originals. History buffs revel in what was and soak it in.

This bridge is purported to be several hundred years old and yet is used by the populace daily.I always find myself slipping back in time when I visit--every 10 years or so!!!

December 28, 2015. 5:00pm with heavy fog. Beautiful bridge, city, surreal view, ghostly ambiance, looks really beautiful. Just thinking, we saw this place in winter, with Christmas decorations, not like the people are used to see it. The bridge is long and rustic, very impressive. I'll be back some time in any summer to see it from other point of... More

This is the landmark of the city, it highlights the city. It was good to have the tower as a background of photos.

Visited during a warm January day. Bridge was moderately crowded. Good photos up and down the river. There is artwork above the walk in the eaves.

Pretty cool to walk across the bridge and see some of the paintings that survived.. Although, I wish I had seen it in the summer when the bridge is covered in flowers, would have been beautiful.
