Of course if you are in Lucern or Kriens you MUST visit that place, it's in the city center, free and you can't miss it. It's nice walkway to cross the river. A lot of nice painting are on the ceiling each 3 meters

This is one of the landmarks that have to be visited in Switzerland. Such amazing history and nostalgia. Paintings showing different stories of Switzerlands past are quite amazing. The flowers on the outside of the bridge are just too beautiful.

A visit to Lucerne without seeing the Chapel Bridge is neigh impossible - it is at the center of the town and gives it its distinct flair - so much that there is nary a tourist brochure or picture series of Lucerne without this edifice. Definitely a "must see" - and make sure that when you traverse the bridge, you... More

It's a beautiful bridge and easy to just look out as you are walking across. Make sure you take time to look up. There are several fantastic paintings that depict different stories of Lucerne.

This bridge is beautiful. From near or far, it looked great. The river below the bridge is full of ducks and the water is crystal clear. Even during the night, we could see the bottom of the river. It is so clean and we felt peaceful sitting on the stools provided. P.S : those travelling with elders will have to... More

A nice highlight of the city, and interesting story as well of the burning and rebuild. Should check it out when in the area!

This is well worth a visit at anytime of the day but at night it is just wonderful all lit up. It's quite relaxing just to go there and take in the views. Handy to plenty of restaurants and Old Lucene. I believe this bridge. Dates back to the 14th century but burnt down about 1993 and is now restored
