What You Can Expect

Lucerne City Walking Tour

Visit world-famous sights such as the Chapel Bridge

Greet your guide and group at a central Lucerne spot and commence your 2-hour walking tour of the German-speaking city perched on the shores of Lake Lucerne. Stroll across the 14th-century Chapel Bridge, that spans the Reuss River, and listen to legends surrounding the oldest surviving truss bridge in the world. Capture photographs of the Water Tower that flanks the famous structure and then continue to Jesuit Church. 

Absorb the tranquil atmosphere of the sacred structure and gaze at the first Baroque church in Switzerland. Learn about its cultural and architectural significance and then head to the Culture and Congress Center to admire its dynamic design. 

Scour the city for remains of the Musegg Wall, a medieval city rampart that used to protect Lucerne, and then navigate the serpentine tangle of alleys and lanes that surround atmospheric public squares. Watch locals go about their daily business and hear tales of cultural traditions before returning to your original departure point, where the tour concludes.

Well worth taking the tour! Our guide, Gaby, was very personable, and she related a lot of the history and stories related to the city. It was excellent! If you don't take an actual tour, you don't know what you're looking at.
