A must see and walk over this beautiful old wooden bridge with fascinating paintings in the rafters and an old Chapel. Free of charge and a lovely place to admire the views of the River Reuss

these paintings are all along the bridge. They tell the history of the town, original paintings one can not get more history that this.

Unlike the Chapel Bridge, which burned and destroyed most of its paintings, this bridge still has wonderful stories told in its rafters. We walked here off tour on our own and it was well worth the few minutes. It is easy to get to, and...More

This is another beautiful, old bridge that is a must see. The paintings are amazing and when you think about how old it is it truly makes you stop and think,

Although it may be less popular than the Chapel Bridge, this one is fully original and well worth crossing to take in all the original murals along the way!

The bridge is fairly unique. There’s some art in the arches and a tiny chapel. I haven’t seen anything like it before.

It's farther down the River Reuss than the Chapel Bridge - why not cross it and then come back to the other side via the Chapel Bridge? It has the same kind of artwork as the Chapel Bridge - but note that this bridge is...More

Still in the historic district, and well worth a walk as part of a circular stroll. The paintings are quite fine, though a good guide book with explanations is essential if you don't speak German. I thought it really gave insight into the late medieval...More

This is the small brother of Chapel Bridge, it is a wooden bridge, too. It has beautiful paintings, and I think it should be visited more, as part of the 0old town and history of Lucerne, it's as beautiful as the Chapel Bridge

We have researched the main sights and are interested in seeing the Water Spike, Chapel Bridge, Spreuer Bridge, Musegg Wall, the Town Hall, the old town, water tower, lion monument, Jesuit Church, Hof Church and Ritterscher Palace.
