The chapel bridge is one of the most famous bridges in Switzerland. The bridge is located in the town called Lucerne and it has been for over hundreds of years. It’s the pride of the people of the city and in the region. Lucerne is itself a relatively small town with a few thousand people living here but still is a tourist’s location.Most tourists come to see the Chapel Bridge. The bridge has been constructed in the 14th century but had to be rebuilt partly due a fire in 1993. The bridge has been reconstructed back to the original state but for the people living in Lucerne it will never be the same. As a tourist you won’t notice anything different.Although the bridge was been built in the 14th century the paintings that you can see has been added in the 17th century and represent the history of Switzerland and the region. The tower has been built in the 14th century and mostly used as a prison and torture chamber. Now today you can visit the tower and learn all about the history.It’s a beautiful sight to visit and really impressive.
