  • Another bridge, less famous than the Kapelbrucke, but not must visit it. Darker appearance, inside, it tells the story of the black death that ravaged Lucerne.

  • Continuing along the Reuss River from the left side we arrived at the "mill bridge" the oldest with the under roof decorated by decorations and paintings of the painter k. Meglinger called "danse macabre" nothing short of spectacular, beautiful and meaningful; a cycle of paintings that depicts death as main theme, with the expulsion from Eden of Adam and Eve, to that of the King, Bishop, clergy, Princes, courtiers; very significant the Panel where the death, grabs a child playing and ripping out of the hands of the mother; all panels are the same for all death, ripping the life when you least expect the lies, the loved ones, from riches, treasures, makes no distinction of rich and poor, young and old, think, deserves to be admired and crossed this famous bridge, over all the view and unique, with dazzling waters, old town is worth a visit in its narrow streets and small squares.

  • Beautiful wooden footbridge in Lucerne just below the fortress and walls across the Reuss River. Built in 1408 it is now the oldest bridge of it's type in the world. The pediments of the bridge tell stories on in triangular paintings known as Totentanz done between 1616 and 1637. The paintings tell in picture form the Lucerne Danse Macabre telling there is no place where death is not present.
  • Another wonderful bridge in this beautiful city.
  • Incredibly beautiful bridge! Belongs on a postcard. Doesn't seem real.
  • Looks more rustic than the other bridge, it's also beautiful and has less tourist movement
  • Beautiful bridge with a peculiar history.

Where to stay in Lucerne

Small, historical Lucerne is big in its accommodation offerings. Surrounding the bay are plenty of mid-range and upscale hotels for those looking to splurge, putting you right downtown with easy access to sights, bars, and restaurants. If your budget is tight, look into the handful of guesthouses in the city. There are limited hostels available, and they tend to be a bit farther from the city core. Be sure to book in advance to avoid missing out.
