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.

This place looks like a shooting place of a movie... Its really beautiful. U can spot different color flowers and people from different country here. Just sit, have coffee and enjoy photography here. Nicely maintained place to spend an hr.
What an amazing bridge. Fully wooden and still standing for so many years. The weird thing is that it is diagonal, I will look into that. The water is beautifully blue in the daytime and amazing at night.
Very impressive paintings. A view into a time where religion played an important role in daily life. Beautiful views.
Beautiful old wooden bridge with so much scenic and lake flowing around. Surrounded with cafes, church and many more shops. Best picturesquely place with ducks floating around the lake.
Really nice bridge made of wood. It has beautiful views to the old town and the river. In the middle, there is a gift shop, on the ends there are lots of cafe shops, restaurants and cultural places. Unfortunately the bridge stinks like a public toilet...
