Lovely bridge

Enjoyed a beautiful walk over the bridge in the evening . Worth seeing if you are near Zurich central station. Good photo opportunities.

This old wooden bridge over the river is a must see when in Lucern. A nice motive for a photo when the sun goes down over the river.

A walk along this bridge was beautiful and although it was a chilly day, the amount of visitors walking with us certainly helped to keep the wind chill away.

This bridge runs across the city centre and its a great FREE tourist thing to do. Many tourists are there taking photos and walking the bridge, but it is totally worth the trip.

You can't help but be drawn to the Chapel Bridge which is the showpiece of Lucerne.Beautifully restored and maintained.My only peeve is, as a photographer, is the lighting. The bridge itself is nicely lit, but I really would have like to see some lights mounted at the bottom of the tower as this disappears into the darkness once the sun... More

You can't miss this beautiful bridge as it's a major connection between the old town center and the less old town (including the rail station). Take your time to view the original panel paintings (the ones saved from the fire in 1993) and appreciate the rich history this town has to offer.

What it seems to be just a bridge is full of history when you cross it. Is well kept and offers a nice view of the river. The details in the paintings and the flowers along the bridge is just simply beautiful. Best part is free of charge to cross it and admire it.
