Everyone knows it, and yet it is always a special experience to stroll across the Chapel Bridge, the symbol of the city of Lucerne. Did you know that the Chapel Bridge with its famous picture cycle is the second longest covered wooden bridge in Europe?

The "Zeitturm" (Cytturm), whose construction dates back to 1406, was formerly part of Lucerne's city fortifications. Today its interior houses a collection of old clockworks. Anyone who has managed to climb the 138 steps to the top is rewarded with a breathtaking view of the city and the surrounding countryside.

End the day in a romantic way
End an eventful day with a candlelight dinner on Lake Lucerne. While the setting sunbathes the landscape in a warm light, you can enjoy a fine aperitif and a 3-course menu on the historic steamboat. It could hardly be more romantic!
