The Nine Towers, Lucerne
(4.4/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • If you have good legs climb the many ramps discal and admire the panorama which can be enjoyed from the top of the towers.

  • The path of 9 towers is more than recommended, there is a meadow with wild anlimales at the foot of one of the towers. The nine towers are different with each other and some (I think two or three you can upload to a certain extent) is a journey not very long with a 2 hour quiet you do everything

  • Looking at the scenery from the observation deck where it's just a really beautiful when you do not have to take you far beyond the weather., and surprisingly difficult, so on my way to fitness with plenty of time to go. so even on a hot day shines
