Lucerne, Switzerland

Lucerne, Switzerland's Chapel Bridge is world famous

Lucernehas an attractive Old Town that runs along the banks of Lake Lucerne. The covered bridge in the background dates from the 14th century and is  known as the Chapel Bridge (Kappelbrücke).  It  was badly damaged in a fire a little over a decade ago and large portions of it have been rebuilt.  The octagonal building in the foreground is  called the Watertower (Wasserturm) and it has served as a treasury and prison among other uses.  For more information about Lucerne, visit the town's official tourism website.  

Lucerne, Switzerland's Chapel Church at night

The church in the photograph above (the Jesuit Church or Jesuitenkirche) was built by the Jesuits in the 17th century, with later additions and alternations. As you can see, it is particularly attractive when illuminated.

Lucerne, Switzerland viewed from its lake
