Breathtaking views, and exercise.

Climbing the towers is a workout, but worth it. The views from the towers and the wall are beautiful. It also houses the oldest city clock from 1535. The best part: it's free!

I walked over to the towers. As I climbed the towers and then out to walk the towers were closed in many places. I could not see the places I needed to see. It was a wasted trip.

Visiting the towers in Lucerne is going down memory lane for me. I went to school within their walls and towers and secrets. I visited this time on a rainy day and enjoyed!

If you climb all the towers, it's actually takes quite a bit of work, but totally worth the effort. Best part is they are all free.

It is a must visit place and has very great view from the wall. One cannot realise from the ground that it could be such a good experience.

Great view of the city. Interesting clock tower. Although there are 9 towers, only 3 are open for climbing. The stairs are a little scary, but worth the walk and climb if you aren't scared of heights.

Not a big fan of heights but the view makes it worth the nervy climb,( quite safe and inside the tower.) At the top there is a great view of the city and lake and in the other direction , a more rural aspect. Walk along the wall between the towers and descend through another tower. The walk up to...

Took me a while to find the entrance so started 1/2 way and had to cling some very steep steps - not my favourite! Then I realise that I suffer from vertigo, so not the best for me.

We walked along the back side (away from the city) of the city walls and I could not resist climbing to the top of the tower with the White Knight on top. There were many steps, but it was well worth it to look way down and wave to my husband, and to get a terrific view of Old Town... More

This is located right in the heart of the old town in Lucerne city. A quick accent at the top of one of the towers gives you a breathtaking view of the Lucerne city. Also not to be missed is a set of very old clocks which give you an idea of how complicated the clocks used to be in... More
