My friend and I actually found this location by accident. It's really pretty and after tackling all of the steep stairs, you can get a perfect view of Switzerland. It's a free thrill and worth the struggle to get up to it!

You walk alongside most of the towers. I think 6of the 9 you could walk past. If you go up any tower, make sure it is the clock tower

Walking this takes you back in time to the feeling of medieval times and fortified town. A must do. Great sites and views over Lucerne and surrounding classic Swiss cottages and house, Walkable from the Township.

Really just an old wall with towers. I enjoyed being up high and climbing into the clock tower. They have all the tower clocks from the ages inside, all running correct time. Not as good as I thought for city views and most have some...More

We really enjoyed our walk along up the towers and along the rampart walls It's not an easy walk, but it's worth it. The clock mechanism in the clock tower was interesting to watch. The view from the tops of the towers was beautiful. I...More

They make for a nice walk and you can actually walk the walls in between the towers. A climb to the top of any of the towers gives you a wonderful view of the city of Lucerne. Don't miss the clock tower especially!

Even if you did not climb up the walk itself is very relaxing. Entrance reveals the rich history of the city. A climb up gives some wonderful views. Closed in winter.

If in Luzern, this site is worth checking out! There is a lot of walking and stairs involved but definitely worth the trek! It was open when we were there beginning of April. Beautiful views above the city.

What a beautiful city this is. Not many tourists do take the time to visit all nine towers of the city. Each one has it’s own story. To be there and touch them it’s like going back in centuries. Impressive indeed.
