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.

  • Is a set of towers that are part of the wall built to protect the city, at the time of the middle ages. In some towers is allowed to rise. Worth a nice walk along the wall, as you will have the best views of some parts of the city.
