These nine towers are each different and connected with the old city wall. You can walk along the wall and even enter some of the towers at no charge. It's a nice walk and the towers are in good condition. I think it's more worthwhile to find a guided tour and hear a little more about the history of the city and the towers.

remaining of the old medieval City Wall. Described under "The Old Town of Lucerne". Can be visited during the day, free of charge.
Four of the towers can be visited, need "some fitness" because the steep stairs. Entrence at the "Schirmer Tower" about in the center. This part of the remaining old defence has nine towers left, but some are in private assiciations.

I't was marvoulous to look up to, look down on and walk onto the old wall and the 9 towers to connect the wall;)

I only managed to walk a portion of the towers and climbed up to the first tower. It offers a good aerial view of the city and good exercise. Some of the steps are steep so be aware. It is worth the effort to climb up. Add this to your list of places to see in Luzern.

...but the medieval walls are still impresssive. One section closed at present for renovation although that stll leaves a good length. Beware, the tower steps are very steep
