We walked around the old wall surrounding Luzern and enjoyed the views of the Nine Towers. We did go into some of the towers and had great views of the city. They spend a lot on upkeep and restoration so it is a really enjoyable...More

Spend a little time exploring the towers. Beware that there are LOTS of steps and steep climbs, but the views are worth it. All of this is free and you can just take your time and go at your own pace. Well worth a couple...More

Spend a couple of hours climbing hills and stairs, the tower wall is something to see while in Lucerne, but you really need a good pair of walking shoes, lots of climbing and walking but the views of the city are your reward.

The Musegg Wall is really something you should see when in Lucerne. There are 4 towers open to the public, including the Zyt Tower which has the towns oldest clock. When you walk along the wall you can get really great views of the town...More

Great way to get a good view of the city of Lucene for free and burn off some of the pastries. Some climbs will make some people puff but it's worth it for real the view. Start at the river bridge. The tourism centre knows...More

Climb the hill and spend two hours climbing up the towers and touring the wall. Wear good walking/hiking shoes and bring your camera. Fantastic city and mountain views.

My friend and I actually found this location by accident. It's really pretty and after tackling all of the steep stairs, you can get a perfect view of Switzerland. It's a free thrill and worth the struggle to get up to it!

You walk alongside most of the towers. I think 6of the 9 you could walk past. If you go up any tower, make sure it is the clock tower

Walking this takes you back in time to the feeling of medieval times and fortified town. A must do. Great sites and views over Lucerne and surrounding classic Swiss cottages and house, Walkable from the Township.

Really just an old wall with towers. I enjoyed being up high and climbing into the clock tower. They have all the tower clocks from the ages inside, all running correct time. Not as good as I thought for city views and most have some...More
