"" Lucerne Favorite Tip by DrewV

Lucerne General: 98 reviews and 131 photos


Fondest memory: Lucerne's pride and joy are its bridges. Two lovingly maintained medieval covered bridges span the Reuss, along with several not-so-old, not-so-covered bridges. The two covered ones both feature a spate of 17th century paintings (lesser men would call them frescoes).

On the less-famous Spreuer Bridge, the paintings show the Totentanz, the 'Dance of Death.' Basically, it's one painting after another featuring the many different ways you can die. Happy stuff.
