So many different perspectives to see the bridge and each makes it more beautiful. We went at sunset and found the light perfect for viewing (as well as not too hot)

A beautiful wooden bridge with old paintings under the roof and flowers. There were more paintings, but they were destroyed in a fire. It is the right place for romantic walks and photos day or night. It is the nicest spot in Luzern.

Ofcourse it is interesting to see the oldest bridge in Europe.At least to walk once/twice on it to see how it was done inside.It has some paintings inside the roof and souvenirs on the halfway of the bridge.

It's an old bridge- nice, but not too interesting. Still you have to see it when in Luzern - just like you have to see the lion.

As you walk across the bridge you will see paintings of historical events. Unfortunately, the bridge caught fire not long ago, but was able to be restored.

This chapel bridge is a lucerne icon. Located in the city center and just a few step from lucerne main station. A good place to relax and see a clean water river.
