Chapel bridge at the Reuss, Lucerne - enjoy history and ambience
Chapel Bridge, Lucerne
Spanning across the River Reuss in Lucerne is the wooden covered footbridge, the Chapel bridge, named after St. Peter's Chapel. The inside of the bridge has historical paintings ating back to the 17th century, telling the history of Lucerne and surroundings. Regrettfully part of the bridge was burnt down in 1993 and restored.
Along the bank of the River Reuss you will find many restaurants and Cafés serving from breakfast to a late dinner, where you can enjoy traditional Swiss bakery & kitchen, foreign kitchen and the ambience. This is a favorite hangout for locals as well as tourists.
We highly recommend a visit to Lucerne, enjoy a coffee at the banks of the river Reuss, walk inside the Chapel bridge, paying attention to the paintings inside the bridge. Later on, visit the old town of Lucerne and see the decorations on the houses, which are not only decorative but also tell history of Lucerne
