Det ottekantede vandtårn & Kapelbroen
(Kapellbrücke), opkaldt efter det nærliggende St. Peters Kapel, er Luzerns vartegn. Broen og vandtårnet var en del af byens fæstningsværk. Kapelbroen, Europas ældst bevarede træbro, er en overdækket gangbro, der blev opført i 1333. Den er 170 m lang og krydser floden Reuss diagonalt. Indvendig i broen er en serie af trekantede malerier, der skildrer begivenheder fra Luzerns historie udført i 1600-tallet af den lokale maler Hans Heinrich Wägmann. I en brand den 18. august 1993 blev mange af malerierne ødelagt og ligeså broen, der blev rekonstrueret året efter.
The octagonal Water Tower & The Chapel Bridge
(Kapellbrücke), named after the nearby St. Peter's Chapel, are the landmarks of Lucerne. The bridge and water tower were part of the city fortifications. The Chapel Bridge, Europe's oldest surviving wooden bridge, is a covered footbridge which dates back to 1333. It is 170 meters in length and crosses the River Reuss diagonally. Inside the bridge is a series of triangular paintings depicting events from Lucerne's history executed in the 17th century by the local painter Hans Heinrich Wägmann. Many of the paintings were destroyed along with most of the bridge in a fire on 18 August 1993. The bridge was reconstructed the following year.
