About this city walk
This self-guided city walk in Lucerne makes sure that you won't miss anything: the Chapel Bridge, City Wall, Gütsch Castle, various churches and museums, the historical Old Town, the Lion Monument, the lake and even the less touristy Neustadt are all included.
We recommend to allocate a minimum of 3 hours to allow for a leisurely pace and some photography along the way. You can spend a full day if you also make a boat trip, have lunch, do some souvenir shopping or visit one or more museums, like the Swiss Museum of Transport.
