Nine towers is worth the walk. Get good shoes and climb up. On one side you see the hill with cows just layer there, on the other side of the wall is a stunning view of the city and lake. It takes about 1 hour- 2 hours to walk the complete wall depending on your speed, but it is quite... More

Definitely take the time to go up on the wall and go up some of the towers. There was no charge to go up and it gave us an amazing view of the city. Some of the towers have clocks and you can see the inner workings of them. Overall definitely worth the little bit of walking you'll need to... More

Walk along the wall but don't be in the clock tower at 12 noon or bring hearing protection. We walked the whole thing, a lot of climbing.

Well worth the time to climb to the top of the towers for a great view over old town. Walk the walls and defend into the next tower, great old clock and time machine on way out. Enjoyable easy walking. Some narrow wooden stairs to climb . Just take it slowly.

We really enjoyed exploring the nine towers of Lucerne. The clock tower is the best as there is a lot of original clock work inside (which you can see how it works!). There is also a lot of good views at the base of the clock tower (one of the best places in my opinion).

You'll huff and puff getting up to the tower which is entry point to walk the walls and experience some of the best views of the old town and the River Reuss. But the exercise is well worth it. Getting back down to the riverside is also a challenge as the walkway is steep and narrow. But this is another... More

Interesting attraction that puts the history of Luzern as a walled town into perspective. We particularly enjoyed climbing up several towers, and the restored clock tower was our favorite. Some of the towers were a bit neglected, but overall its worth a trip, even if just for the commanding views of Luzern

While we enjoyed this, it is not for anyone with bad legs. The best part is the view you'll get from the towers, which offer great views across Lucerne. This would be very taxing for those not in shape or light on their feet. The steps up the towers are narrow, steep, and there are a ton of them. We... More

Just a great city to visit. Romantic, beautiful, clean, etc. We will come back! The Ameron Hotel was very good! I had written down that the reception staff was not friendly at all but I would like to specify that not all of them were like that. Two people, a girl and the guy who checked us in were very...

Good to get there and imagine how soldiers once attacked others on the wall. Climb higher to the tower and get good pictures of the city!
