Join us for a walk around Lucerne! Already in the Middle Ages, Lucerne was a city of bridges. In 1400, Lucerne was the only city in Europe to boast four bridges. The Hof Bridge, constructed around 1250 (demolished 1834), and the Chapel Bridge, built around 1300, formed part of the city fortifications. The Spreuer Bridge served to connect the lower parts of the city. Nowadays the less attractive Reuss Bridge is the oldest river crossing and contributed considerably to the city's development. It was not until the 19th and 20th centuries that five more bridges were added. However, Lucerne is also a city of palaces, churches and squares. You will learn some funny, interesting and true facts about Lucerne's history, churches, bridges, lanes, squares, towers and of course about Lucerne's trademark, the Chapel Bridge with the Water Tower.
