Beautiful old bridge. Enjoyable to walk around while visiting Lucerne. The water in Lake Lucerne is crystal clear and I'm told it's actually drinkable.

Had been there with my colleagues there to Lucerne. This is a nice city with splendid views. This pedestrian bridge unfolds the history for this place. You get good photographic views from this Bridge.

The Chapel Bridge (or Kapellbrucke) is the center piece of the city, with pretty murals inside the bridge that showcase the history of the region. Hard to move across during the day due to all the tour groups, so be sure to time your crossings.

This old wooden bridge over the river is a must see when in Lucern. A nice motive for a photo when the sun goes down over the river.

A walk along this bridge was beautiful and although it was a chilly day, the amount of visitors walking with us certainly helped to keep the wind chill away.

This bridge runs across the city centre and its a great FREE tourist thing to do. Many tourists are there taking photos and walking the bridge, but it is totally worth the trip.

You can't help but be drawn to the Chapel Bridge which is the showpiece of Lucerne.Beautifully restored and maintained.My only peeve is, as a photographer, is the lighting. The bridge itself is nicely lit, but I really would have like to see some lights mounted at the bottom of the tower as this disappears into the darkness once the sun... More
