Known by its citizens as a city for pedestrians, there are many accessible pathways that make seeing the sights of Lucerne on foot a joy. Take a leisurely stroll alongside the River Reuss and sample the delightful atmosphere, marvel at the Kappellbrucke and its Water Tower, or cross over the Spreuer Bridge into the Jesuit quarter.
The Tourist Information Centre offers a guided city walk around Lucerne, which will tell you the important, humorous, and interesting facts about Lucerne's history, churches, bridges, narrow streets, towers, and squares, as well as its trademark-the Chapel Bridge with Water Tower.
Duration: approximately 2 hours
The guided city walk is available daily from May 1 to October 31, and on Wednesdays and Saturdays during November 1 to April 30.
You can also purchase a special ticket that includes sightseeing and a city tour on the City Train (approximately 3 hours) for CHF 24.
