We originally wanted to go to mt pilatus but due to the threat of rain and not so nice weather we scrapped this and visited the walls instead. This was a cool secondary experience - I wouldn't go out of your way to do this...More

Large tourist groups are not found here, at least not when I went today. While everybody was in town shopping, my wife and I walked here. The wall and towers were fantastic. Not crowded at all. I only climbed one tower and got some great...More

With so much to see in Luzern, the one must-do sight is this climb along the medieval walls and clocktowers of the old town, which offer the most sweeping views of the town and the soaring Alpine peaks surrounding it. We entered by the path...More

Museggmauer area was my favorite part of Lucerne. Not only do you get to climb the historical fortress and see the city from above, there's also a charming farm right next to it with pastoral views. Serene and beautiful.

Had a walk & chanced upon this spot... went up on a hot afternoon & it's quite a long flight of stairs to go up to the top. However, the stairs were well-made with rails for you to hold on. Once you reach the top,...More

Great place to visit if you are in the area. Good views from top of the wall. A bit of a hike but well worth it.

This is the museum proper of the nine towers and wall. Very interesting. For such a peace loving people the Swiss sure had a lot of fighting in their history.

This is a must do while in Lucerne. It's a great stroll along the city wall and interesting to see how the old an new cities have blended together.

The heat made it a little difficult when we were there, but it was not strenuous. Lots of places to rest along the way. At some of the towers you have the option to go up the ladders/stairs and while the views and clockworks... More
