The Nine Towers, Lucerne
(4.4/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • After seeing the lion we went back to the center but couldn't resist climbing up to the highest tower to see the landscape and enjoy these wonderful monuments of the past 
  • Recommended for sunny weather and interest in history. Best traversed the OneWay and take enough time. Who goes with background knowledge experienced it more intensively.

  • Awesome old and historic wall and Towers. I got goosebumps as I heard the story about the wall and the city. Simply great!
