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

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

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.

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.

Very disappointed that the nine towers and the walk along the old wall is closed during winter. I was looking forward to this, so was very disappointed that it was closed. We walked along the wall for a while and were amazed by the size of the wall and towers.

The walls and towers are part of the medieval town defenses. They are well maintained and provide great views of the town and surrounding countryside.
