Not easy to find

It's a walk going upwards, but nice to see the towers from close distance. I couldn't find a couple of them though, but the clock one is beautiful.

Lots of steps to the tops of the towers and you need a head for heights to walk along the top of the wall, but worth the effort as you get some great views of the town below.

Luzern has kept some of its original wall and towers. They are well worth the little effort required to climb those that are accessible. Obviously the views are great and the history inside the Clock Tower is great.

Iconic old city wall featuring 9 towers, some open to the public & offering great views from the top. Good for a walk when the weather is nice. During summer we were able to enter 4 of the 9 towers: Schirmer, Zyt, Wacht and Männli.

Not to be missed! This free walk and tour of several of the tours offers amazing views of Lucerne and a chance to walk through history. The steps are steep and I did it all in sandles(flip flops) but would recommend shoes. the first tower that I entered seemed a bit strange as you had to go down to go... More

takes a hike to get there, but the view is interesting and educational. You can walk along the wall and then climb into some of the towers along the wall where you can look over the city and the lake.

The towers provide an excellent view of the city as they are strategically located. You can walk upto the towers.

We have been to Luzern many times, but this is the first time we took the whole family along the old rampart walls. Get inside the clock tower. Easy walk. Good for kids. Beautiful views of the city

We reached the towers late in the day and were not able to see all, but did climb two of them for very nice views of the city.
