The concierge at our hotel had recommended this to us, and I'm glad we went. We spend about 45 minutes here. It was difficult to find, but worth it. A lot of stairs are involved, but the views from the top of the clock tower...More

Interesting towers and great views,but surprisingly few people. We were often the only ones in the towers, so we were able to move at our own pace. After exploring the towers we walked back along the river and looked at the weirs.

Great way to experience Lucerne, the lake and the Alps. 9 towers are part of wall protecting old town, each different but in their totality a great experience

It is not easy to get information about the places without guide or google... However the place is very beautiful!

Worth a visit, not always easy to find or to climb but great views of the area. Take your camera. It was hot whilst we were there so even more exhausting.

Up a hill at the back of the town. A good stroll from the city. These formed part of the wall that protected the city many centuries ago and there are informative signs all along the pathway.

The towers are positioned so that you can look out over the whole of Lucerne and across the lake to the castles. Long climb.We only went up three of the towers

and get a look at these old towers and their contents, which include an old clock tower and give great views of old Lucerne.

This was another clock tower and wall we toured. Very interesting and worth th stop, as there was no fee to enter. Walking. Walking. Walking. Hills, hills, hills. Most things were in German and other languages, not much English. Most other places we've been in...More
