right in the middle of the city in between the old town and the train/bus station, it's the icon of Luzern, overlooking the Pilatus Mountain, how can you miss it?!

This is the iconic landmark of Luzern City. This bridge connect one part of old town to other part. The lake have been built around 1333, initially the bridge was more longer the today’s one. The main specialty of this bridge is different paining in triangular frame. These paintings are hanged through out the bridge.
In 1993, a fire accident occurs on this wooden bridge. And many of these paining was destroyed that time. Which are still empty after the rebuilt.
There is a tower adjacent to this bridge, you can go top of this, in some specific time of summer. In old time this was used as a treasure bank of the government and the archer used to guard from top of the tower.
There is not ticket to visit the bridge, you can enjoy the bridge many time you want. But don’t smoke on the bridge, it’s strictly restricted .

You just can't miss this. Bang at the center of the city and right outside the central station, the Chapel bridge greets you with its paintings and water. And the view in the evening is even more amazing.

Must see in Lucerne. Beautiful Frescos even the reproductions. There's lots of history here and a great way to cross the river into Old Town.
