Walk on Europe’s oldest bridge

On this 1.5-hour walking tour of Lucerne, a charming city nestled between the Swiss Alps and Lake Lucerne, your guide will lead you through some fascinating sights. Starting with the famous Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke) and Water Tower, you'll stroll along Europe's oldest wooden bridge, dating back to the 14th century. Admire the ancient paintings and learn about the bridge's history, including its restoration after a fire in 1993.

Continuing the journey through Lucerne's picturesque Old Town, the next stop is the city's most famous monument, the Dying Lion. This remarkable stone sculpture portrays a lion being struck by a spear, with a touching Latin inscription above it: "Helvetiorum Fidei ac Virtuti," meaning "To the loyalty and bravery of the Swiss." This poignant symbol of Lucerne commemorates the Swiss soldiers who gallantly sacrificed their lives to assist the French Royal Family's escape during the tumultuous period of the French Revolution.

Lucerne on foot with a Guide

Next to the solemn Lion monument, you'll find the Glacier Garden, a serene park housing a museum with artifacts dating back to the Ice Age. This picturesque spot is considered one of Switzerland's earliest tourist attractions. You can opt for an English, French, or German-speaking guide who will share both important historical facts and humorous anecdotes about Lucerne's past and the daily lives of its residents.
