“Beautiful”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We came from Geneva on a daytrip to see this bridge. It is beautiful and even better than I had hoped for. The bride is easy to find from the railway station: come out, turn left and cross the road to walk a few metres along the river bank.

The bridge is heavily transited by tourists, but there was plenty of space to stop and take pictures. Under the eaves there are some lovely paintings of incidents from the history of - I assume - Lucerne that are well worth a look at. The views from the bridge are beautiful and the water in the river underneath crystalline, with plenty of swans and ducks swiming on it.

“Must see”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

One of the totemic sites of Lucerne. Everyone has said most of it - what i would like to add is to see it sometime in the day and sometime in the late evening when the lights start coming on - love the two different views.

“Must see in Lucerne”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

This bridge is one of the famous sites of Lucerne. My advice is to photograph it in the morning or afternoon (using sun angles and shadow), and walk it in the evening (during the summer) to enjoy cooler temperatures and night-time lights on the water. It was slightly damaged some while ago, but most of the paintings are still intact.
