Chapel Bridge

Chapel Bridge

The Chapel Bridge is located nearby and was constructed in the first half of the 14th century as a part of the city's fortifications and named after St. Peter's Chapel.
The paintings that were added in the 17th century illustrate scenes of Swiss and local history, including the biographies of the city's patron saints, St. Leodegar and St. Maurice.
Pilatus

Pilatus

Maker of weather, dragon's lair, home to giants and grave of rulers: Lucerne's very own mountain, Pilatus, is one of the most legendary places in Central Switzerland. And one of the most beautiful. On a clear day the mountain offers a panoramic view of 73 Alpine peaks.

Lion Monument

Lion Monument

«The dying Lion of Lucerne» is one of the world's most famous monuments.
It was carved out of natural rock in memory of the heroic deaths of the Swiss mercenaries at the Tuileries in 1792. Mark Twain described the Lion of Lucerne as the saddest and most moving piece of rock in the world.
Old Town

Old Town

Historical buildings clad in frescos border the Old Town on the right bank of the River Reuss at a few picturesque squares.
The Weinmarkt, where Lucerne swore a federal oath with the cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden in 1332, is especially attractive. Equally attractive is the Hirschenplatz square, named after an old inn dating from the Middle Ages, and the Kornmarkt square, which features the Town Hall and the beautifully painted Pfistern guildhall.
KKL

KKL

The KKL Luzern (Culture and Convention Centre Lucerne) at Europaplatz is the work of the Parisian architect Jean Nouvel.
The concert hall (1800 seats) is one of the finest concert halls in the world. The Lucerne Hall, the Convention Centre with the auditorium, and the Museum of Art - the fourth largest in Switzerland - are also part of this sensational construction.

A part of the rampart walls built in 1386; the wall is still almost entirely intact. Four towers are open to the public: Schirmer, Zyt, Wacht and Männli. The oldest city clock, built by Hans Luter in 1535, is in the Zyt tower. This clock is allowed to chime every hour one minute before all the other city clocks.
Bourbaki

Bourbaki

The 112 meter by 10 meter large painting is one of the last giant panoramic paintings of the 19th century that have been preserved. It is a European cultural monument. The painter of the Panorama, Edouard Castres, experienced the war as a Red Cross volunteer. A museum (very close to the Glacier Garden) conveys knowledge about the war, the fate of the Bourbaki army and about the panoramic painting.
