If you walk up into the towers, you will enjoy outstanding views of the city. It's fun to imagine what Lucerne must have looked like when the walls were built to protect the city.

The tower with the clock is fantastic, well worth the walk. There are lots of narrow wooden stairs, so do not bother if you cannot climb steps easily. Each tower was different, so don't skip.

Hike up to the city wall and visit the clock works. If you're up to the many steps you can climb behind the clock.

Beautiful views can be seen from Museggmaurer which has nine towers and is part of the city fortifications. The view is worth the climb.

The old city walls are a good to check out and free to visit. The towers are worth climbing as you are rewarded with fabulous panoramic city views!

We had fun exploring the innards of the towers and the mechanisms of the still functioning, centuries old clocks within them. Good exercise for both the legs and cardiovascular system too.

Loved the hike up to this old tower and wall, nothing super spectacular on the insides of the towers, but fun to peruse.

The wall and towers of the old city of Lucerne are certainly worth visiting if you are capable of climbing a fair number of steps. To reach the top of any of the towers requires effort. The view repays the effort!
