This busy little bridge holds so much history, you need to walk through just to see the small details. The art, the new and old pieces. Absolutely stunning

Must see in Lucern because it is very difficult to avoid. You can't find some facts about the bridge without a tourist guide. Interesting fact: although writing and carving the wooden structure is strictly prohibited, you will always see someone leaves a mark on his stay.

A small part of the bridge was undergoing construction when we crossed. Also the paintings at the top were covered by Carneval pictures.

If you are in Lucerne, you can visit this old bridge. Somehow I didnt find it much interesting. It is old wooden bridge. There are few old paintings. May be some people like it.

Beautiful bridge that, although dated forms a unique charm to this lovely city. If you visit, I'm sure you will use the bridge anyway as it is very convenient for exploring this wonderful place.
