Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Octagonal shaped tower which we learnt was built in thirteenth century in the river Reuss was another landmark we were attracted to. We heard that it was called “Wasserturm” or the tower in the water which was used as a treasury, a prison, for defence and a chamber for other city purposes. At a glance it was appearing like an ancient water tower but history behind the stone structure presented a different story. It would have been a civil engineering achievement for that era to successfully build a strong structure like this in water, specially in a river that could create so much of turbulence and force.

The old stone water tower stands adjacent to the Chapel Bridge, but was actually built a century before the first bridge, in the 13th century. Such a pity that the interior of the tower isn’t open to tourists (only by special arrangement through the Lucerne Artillery Association), as it has an amazing history to tell. Used as a prison, torture chamber, treasury, and storage facility in the past. The unusual octagonal design shouts Middle Ages!

The water tower is an iconic point of the city of Lucerne because it is located in the middle of the bridges and the river. It didn't catch my attention much but it didn't seem bad to me either.
