Lucerne and its legendary Chapel Bridge
The Chapel Bridge —or Kappellbrücke as it is called in Swiss German— over the River Reuss in Lucerne is one of Switzerland’s major tourist attractions. It is a covered bridge, 204 metres in length, and it is made out of wood. In the background, you can see some of the nine remaining Musegg Towers. These watchtowers were built starting from the thirteenth century and onwards, in order to protect against invaders, as they offered a strategic view over the city and the surrounding countryside.
