What people are saying:

The Musegge city wall is a very well-preserved ancient city wall, which has a history of more than 600 years and is rare in Switzerland. The city wall itself is not high, but it is built on a higher ground. Before climbing the city wall, you have to go uphill first, so standing on the top of the wall can overlook the magnificent old city scenery, Lake Lucerne and the majestic snow-capped mountains. The sights of Lucerne are relatively concentrated. The city wall is within walking distance and not far from Lucerne Station, so be sure to visit it. The watchtower on the city wall is also interesting, and you can also see wooden beams. This is a free attraction and it is very pleasant to visit.

Additional Information


The Musegg Wall is one of Switzerland's most well-preserved defensive walls, with a variety of watchtowers. The big clock built by Hans Luter on the Zyt tower is a relatively old clock in the city of Lucerne, and enjoys the privilege of reporting the time one minute ahead of the other big clocks in the city. Standing on the wall, you can overlook the entire Lucerne, the lake and mountains in the distance, which is fascinating.
