Constructed in the 14th century, Chapel Bridge has been the iconic wooden footbridge spanning diagonally across the Reuss, in the old town, situated in the centre of Lucerne. It has beautiful paintings on the ceiling of the bridge and it's dimly lit during the night. It's something that you shouldn't miss. If you haven't seen the Bridge, you haven't seen... More

A gorgeous bridge right in the heart of Lucerne. You can't stay in Lucerne without walking over this and taking a few pictures. It's beautiful and in our case gave some protection for on the snow falling around us.

The bridge joins the two main sides of Lucerne city centre. The bridge isn't too long and is worth walking across to experience a good view of the city.

Strolling along this beautiful bridge and taking in the Christmas lights along the lake were a favorite part of our trip to Lucerne. Lots of nice restaurants along both sides to sit and have an after-dinner drink.

Everyone visiting Lucerne must walk across the bridge, at least once. This is the much-loved emblem of the town, which means that every visitor, and even many locals, enjoy the ancient timbers and faded pictures. The view from the middle is excellent, and in summer the display of flowers is quite spectacular.

Visited this as we'd been told it's a 'don't miss it!" Location. A very unique and beautiful spot worth stopping by while you visit Lucerne

Visited Lucerne this January, the days are short. By time we made our way to the covered bridge it was dark. Definitely worth the visit at night. The lights are gorgeous.

This was a wooden bridge that takes you from downtown Luzern to an area with lots of shops & restaurants. Beautiful views and opportunity to see swans & ducks during the day & the lights at night. This is a must to do in Luzern.
