Enjoyed just walking through the gardens to get there! Climbing the bell tower and seeing the displays on each level was interesting. To go along the top of the wall walk was good for views and disturbing the nerves!

My family (2 adults & 2 kids) enjoyed hiking up to the towers and taking in the views. If you go all the way to the top of the towers, some of the steps are very steep & narrow. Kids loved it, but I was a little worried my 8 year old would trip and fall. Not that she would... More

Lucerne is a major stopping off point for bus tours through Switzerland. As such, many of the main sites you will visit can be VERY crowded. Not this one. Walk along the North side of the river past the "Needles" dam until you get to the first tower. It's a bit of a steep walk up the hill to the... More

ok, we were not sure where the road lead, but it was quite a long walk, but very enjoyable... to me the destination was the walk. This takes you up and around an edge of Lucerne, with great countryside views and quiet peacefulness... not many folks were up here! While on our way, we found a clock tower and climbed... More

By visiting the 9 towers and fortified walls, you get a feel for what time used to be like. We were able to go into 4 of the towers, the clock tower being our favorite as it had several displays of old clocks and mechanisms. The clock on the first floor was 2 floors high and still was working. Very... More

Wife and I had a few spare hours, and as these towers are visible from anywhere in Lucerne, you guessed it, wife just had to discover them. After about a 15 minute walk from hotel, we were at the foot of one of the towers. Once at the top which isn't a real hard feat, it is a wonderful view... More

Nine towers is definitely a must do/see when in Lucerne. The walk is definitely worth it and is a part of the city walk tour which takes you through Lucerne's many highlights. The view from all of the towers is amazing you get a view of the Swiss alps, the lake, the town and when you come out through the... More

This is a great activity when in Lucerne. Walk along the medieval ramparts and visit some of the watch towers. The view of the city, Lake Luzern, Mt Pilatus and the other mountains is spectacular.

Walking along the walls and climbing the towers was a lot of fun. The views from the towers were impressive. You could really get see the old bridges and old town. The clock tower was our favorite. We happened to be at the top of the tower when the bell rang. ( It rings just before the other bells in... More
