The best things to do in Lucerne



Kapellbrücke is one of the major tourist attractions in Lucerne. It is the oldest wooden bridge in Europe and on its roof there are 111 spots containing paintings depicting the history of the city. In the center of the bridge is the Water Tower or Wasserturm, which is one of the essential things to see in Lucerne. It is an octagonal stone tower. Built in the Middle Ages, it originally had a defensive purpose, but it has also been used as a prison and torture chamber. It's one of the more unique Lucerne attractions that you really can't miss if you visit the city.

Another of the essential places to visit in Lucerne is the Hofkirche, a church built between 1633 and 1639; it is one of the most important German Renaissance churches in Switzerland. And for more stuff to do in Lucerne, go to the old Town Hall, another historic building which receives hundreds of tourists every day from all over the world.

Visiting the Lion Monument is another of the most popular things to do in Lucerne for tourists. It is a sculpture commemorating the death in 1792 of about 700 mercenaries of the Swiss Guard during the French Revolution; they were defending against the revolutionaries at the Tuileries Palace in Paris.
