Lucerne, Switzerland - A Walking Tour

It was a beautiful afternoon in Lucerne.  Warm temperatures compared to what we had experienced up in the snow covered Mt. Pilatus.  We enjoyed walking the town to experience it.

 Chapel Bridge first constructed in first half of 14th century as part of fortifications.

Water Tower built around 1300.

Needle Dam to regulate water level of Lake Lucerne.

Walking across another wooden walkway over the water on Spreuer Bridge.  Halfway across was this shrine. 

Paintings in the timbers above.

Original wall around the town.


Snow covered peaks loom over the city.

Paintings in rafters of the first wooden bridge.

We stopped in Starbucks before heading to the train station.  It was a good day.
