Actually it would be very hard to miss it! Originally a medieval bridge, now with many later additions and alterations especially after a massive fire in 1993. However, it is still well worth a small detour just to cross the river and there are many...More

Beautiful Swiss city - the Chapel Bridge is well worth a visit, as is the lesser known smaller covered bridge a short distance away. Very pleasant to sit by the lake and let the world go by!

Lovely bridge, great views and clear water. Make sure you read up on its history around the bridge. Have a coffee and lunch right next to it so wonderful views

Excellent spot for dozens of pictures! It's definitely a must see location in Lucerne and it didn't disappoint. The history and architecture is absolutely beautiful. I would definitely recommend coming in the summer to so that the flowers will be out as well.

The old bridge looks really nice and under the roof if you cross the bridge they have paintings / woodcarvings to look at.

Bridge is free is a great place from which to take pictures on both sides of the river. The swans in the water are beautiful and make a picturesque setting. This was the most picturesque city we toured on our European visit of Paris, Freiberg...More

It is very cute and interesting! At night, swarms of moths fly around the lights so it is less pleasant.

Very beautiful bridge that is fun to walk on. Nothing spectacular, but very pretty. The bridge is located just outside the main train station, and by the port.

We were on thius bridge 40 years ago before it burned and although it still looks the same, many oif its paintings were destroyed in the fire. It is still fun to cross and the views arelovely.

This bridge which crosses the River Reuss is spectacular.. it has had a chequered history - so a lot of what you see is fairly modern. However well worth walking across.
