Although it burned down a couple of years ago the new bridge is a must see. One of the highlights of Lucerne.

The Chapel Bridge, also called "The Covered Bridge", was a part of the medieval city defence wall. Give a look on the paintings under the roof. The WATER TOWER (octagonal, unique in world) was constructed in the year 1215, the Chapel Bridge was joined some fiew years lather.
A big fire in the nintyes made great dammage, but the bridge was reconstructed in the absolute same wise (wooden nails!).
Hillary Clinton walked over too, and was also impressed!

To me this was more than a bridge, it was a work of art, it was so perfectly designed it made me want to cry. Too sad that a part of it burnt down, and I am sure they tried their best, but the restoration wasn't quite as great as the original structure in the middle of the bridge.

This is the historic symbol of Luzern, situated right in the middle, so you absolutely have to walk across the bridge. It even has a roof, so it's good in any weather.

Flower baskets were in full bloom. Quintessential Lucerne. What more to say. Right in the heart of the town.
