"Walk The City Walls." City Wall & Towers - Museggmauer Tip by steventilly
City Wall & Towers - Museggmauer, Lucerne: 28 reviews and 70 photos
Built in 1386, the reamaining section of the old city walls is still very much intact. There are about 8 towers on the ramparts, with three that are open to the public and one of these, the Zyt tower, contains a clock built in Basel in 1385. It still keeps time and is, apparently, set to strike the hour one minute ahead of the other clocks in the city, as some sort of ancient privilege. Don't set your watch by this clock.
Address: Schirmertorweg, 6004 Luzern,
Directions: Runs from the river at Geismattbrukke and then parallel to Museggstrasse.
