"well, you gotta see the..." Lucerne Favorite Tip by steventilly

Lucerne General: 98 reviews and 131 photos


Favorite thing: well, you gotta see the bridge! The <b>Kappelbruke</b>, to give it it's proper name, which dates from the 1300's. It is built largely of wood and has 112 painted panels set into the 'V' of the roof. It was largely destroyed by fire in 1993 but has been lovingly restored. Most of the gable paintings were destroyed beyond restoration and have been re-created, true to the originals.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
