We wanted to take in the view of Luzern that the tower presented but we disappointed when we discovered that they were closed until Easter (April). Otherwise it is still worth a quick visit as they are still interesting from ground level.

Well worth the climb through the picturesque old town to see the wall and towers up close. We were especially pleased to discover the huge wall painting of the Wilden Mann which was the name of the hotel where we were staying. It was a clear bright day and from the height we had splendid views down to the lake... More

It's a small incline to get there, but well worth it for views over old town Lucerne, and also to see the towers and wall up close.

Walk along the city ramparts and climb the towers for exquisite views of the city. Luzern is one of my favorite Swiss cities and aside from the iconic Kappelbrucke, this is what I tell all my friends is a must do. The lesser known (and completely original and just as beautiful) Spreuerbrucke (bridge) is nearby.

Lucerne doesn't have a lot of differents things in comparison to another city in Switzerland. However, I've never seen something like that: part of the ancient wall, conserving towers!....Highly recommendable.

The towers are great pieces of beautifully preserved history. Yes there are a lot of steps/stairs to use if you want to go to the top of the towers and walk along the wall. Just imagine the people back in those times doing that on a regular basis. Being in the towers, reading about them, reading about the old clocks... More

I really enjoyed exploring the nine towers. I went with my elderly parents, both in their 70s, they found some sections of the walk quiet hard due to the steep hill and number of steps. However if you are younger and reasonably fit you will have no problems.

Its quite a hilly area but well worth it to see these magnificent towers. Their history is notable and its helpful if you have read about them in advance. Most of the towers are not open to the public but they are beautiful from the outside.
