This stunning bridge is a must see both during the day and at night. It is the emblem of Lucerne. It always seem to have a crowd crossing it.

Very pretty with baskets of flowers either side of the bridge, very busy with many tourists. A long bridge crossing the river, great buildings either side.

If you’re in Lucerne for more than a day you’re likely to come across this bridge. Neat art inside, just hard to stop and appreciate with so many people passing through.

This should be the highlight but too many tourists taking selfies spoil the experience and the general feel is rundown and tacky
