This is part of the tower wall that crosses the town. A must to see if you are in the city and close to the lion.

We only went for a walk because it's near our hotel. I actually didn't know that it's also a famous attraction in Luzern. It's a nice walk.

We walked/climbed Museggmauer on our last day in Lucerne. We thought the views were second only to our Mt. Pilatus experience -- fantastic! There is a climb up to the wall itself which connects four of the towers. If you want to climb the towers,...More

If you are like me, you like to climb towers across Europe. Well, here are three more to climb. There are no restrictions on admission, and no cost. Climb the towers, walk the walls, or sit on a bench and relax. It is all there....More

Opposite the cable car to the hilltop restaurant that looks like a castle (ask around - it's the one Michael Jackson tried to buy) there is a round tower right by the river. The road goes through this tower and right beside... More
