  • The Museggmauer is a well maintained piece of history. The wall is only open certain parts of the year so check before going. When it's open you can walk the wall and take in great views and see...  more »
  • We stumbled across this gem as we were wandering around the town and spent probably an hour going up and down the towers and along the walls.  more »
  • We walk from the lion statue to the Museggmauer. It was not particularly arduous but uphill and the large wall has several towers that you can climb and see the panoramic view of the city from above.  more »

  • Very nice walk on the city walls, not so crowded as many other attractions here in Luzern. The towers offer a great view of the city. Absolutely recommended!!!
  • Hide touristic place, but gorgeous. You can see the entire city and the amazing view of the lake.
  • Payment is optional, though similar attractions have cost around 2-5 francs/person in my experience, so donate accordingly. The towers and wall are in great shape and walking through was rewarding. There is no shortage of beautiful sites while you're walking through, and the clock tower is particularly interesting.
  • Beautiful and must see. But it's a 15 min. visit. Nothing else around there.
  • Had it been a sunny day, the views would've been a lot more impressive. Despite that, did manage to get a good view of the town and most of the mountains. Was the highlight of the Lucerne trip and worth the trek up.
