Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web
Explore the town's medieval defenses on your visit to The Nine Towers. One of the towers houses the oldest city clock, built by Hans Luter in 1535--it's allowed to chime every hour exactly one minute before all the city clocks. Four of the towers are open to the public, and you can climb the steep and narrow staircases in two of them to reach panoramic views of the surrounding city. Check the website, or call ahead for opening and closing hours prior to your visit.

  • Free to visit. Separate bell towers and beautiful views of the city. Nice to have on the upper wall.

  • A very nice extended walk over the old city walls and the towers. There are always beautiful views over the city. Good accessible even in bad weather.

  • In the northern part of the city are located in Lucerne's medieval era remains and we can see this clearly at the sight of the great wall and a set of 9 towers to its surroundings. Currently only four towers are open to the public and requires access to the climb of stairs, but the view of Lucerne makes it worth. Not to be missed!
