All reviews clock tower old city clock works middle ages great city view huge clock wall walk inner workings worth the climb open to the public medieval walls well worth the effort on display nice walk up hill taking photos lake lucerne
These celebrated city walls with their nine towers form part of the historic fortifications built around Lucerne from the 13th century and are very well preserved. It was quite steep to get up to the top but well worthwhile as the views from up here...More
