The Alstadt (old town) is where the fabled charm of Lucerne lies. The Reuss River which divides the city into two distinct parts, Old Town and New Town, plays more of a part than just acting like a division. Hanging atop the river is Europe’s oldest wooden bridge, constructed in the 14th century. There’s a saying that you haven’t actually seen Lucerne unless you’ve walked on the creaky old bridge that undoubtedly Lucerne’s most famouslandmark.
Although the Chapel Bridge you see today has undergone extensive restoration after an obviously disastrous fire in 1993, it’s managed to retain the old feel of it.

Chapel Bridge, Lucerne Reviews - Write a Review
Such a beautiful piece of history that has been preserved for hundreds of years. A walk along the interior of this wooden bridge feels magical. The views of the lake and the old city take on an added romanticism. The exterior is enhanced with a row of gorgeous hanging baskets overflowing with greenery and white flowers. This bridge lends a fairy tale feeling to this city.
One of the landmarks of Luzern, beautiful wooden bridge. Walking inside the bridge, felt like going back in time. The paintings on top have their own stories to tell.
Beautiful place with shops and resturants on the sides of the river. Its also close to the old town and the train station. You can come here to enjoy a cup of jo by the river or have light meal like the fondue.
Good views in the evening. Feels calm while walking on the bridge. Water is so transparent that you can see fishes from the bridge itself. A collar of flower is provided at both sides. Its an historic bridge.
Beautiful symbol of Luzern stated in the center of the city. In this bridge there are old paintings that represent various stories that happened thorough the years. Very nice attraction.
