Chapel Bridge

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by HollieandHunter on April 16, 2004

This is the oldest wooden bridge still standing in the world. Although damaged by fire from a vendor’s stall in the late ‘80s, the beauty of the bridge and the pictorial representation of St. Nicholas's life are awe-inspiring. You may get a crick in your neck from looking up at the detail and beauty of these triangles of art and history. Just watch out for the oh-too-friendly little old men that want to pose for a picture with you they grope.

This isn't Disney or a huge cathedral, but, like the rest of Lucerne, the quiet elegance of the bridge just makes it worth the time.
