This is a place that will give you a workout! :) There are 4 different towers that you can climb. Each one has many stairs leading to the top. It has great views of the city. It's out of the way to find- we started at the Lion statue and then made our way over to it. Worth the walk!

This is one of the things they don't tell you about on a tour. We went over the chapel bridge then up to the Zyt clock tower. We climbed it (the views are pretty good, and the clock is pretty neat), then we walked along the wall down and a few block to the lion monument then down to the... More

Free experience to walk up into the old medieval towers and along the old wall. There are great views of the city. The starting point is somewhat near the old town, but you'll near to do some work to find it.

It's just one of those things you have to do when you're here. It's free and you can't miss them. You can climb around the towers and ramble along the walls. It's easy and fun. And has great views over the town and of the mountains.

It is situated behind the main shopping area..Had to walk a lot to reach there..After reaching there, we dint find much of people around. Also, travelling into each tower is tiring, and after going to the last tower, we had to come all the way to the first tower to get out of there. However, one good thing was the... More

Do it if you have time. If not go for the old city, the bridge and the river banks. Do not miss the cruise on Lake Luzerne

The towers were the only thing I experienced in the city that I would consider just average and not excellent. The views are really nothing to speak of, just tiny windows with wiring around the openings and a steep climb for an anticlimactic view. There are many other spots to take in the views. It's free so it doesn't hurt... More

Enjoyed a walk fro the Chapel Bridge to the towers and were well rewarded with breathtaking views of the lake, the city and Mount Pilatus. Not the easiest of walk as it is a slow uphill walk followed by a number of stairs in the tower but well worth it. You get a great vantage point for some pictures of... More

I found this to be the most interesting attraction in Lucerne. but not many people visit there compare to the Dying Lion Monument and the Chapel Bridge because it's up in the hill and its does take 2 hours to see all 9 towers but it's worth it. Go up to the hill and check them out.
