Stop At: Chapel Bridge, Kapellbruecke, Lucerne 6003 Switzerland

The Chapel Bridge is a covered wooden footbridge spanning the river Reuss diagonally in the city of Lucerne in central Switzerland. Named after the nearby St. Peter's Chapel, the bridge is unique in containing a number of interior paintings dating back to the 17th century, although many of them were destroyed along with a larger part of the centuries-old bridge in a 1993 fire. Subsequently restored, the Chapel Bridge is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe, as well as the world's oldest surviving truss bridge. It serves as the city's symbol and as one of Switzerland's main tourist attractions.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Lion Monument, Denkmalstrasse 4, Lucerne 6006 Switzerland

The Lion Monument (German: Löwendenkmal), or the Lion of Lucerne, is a rock relief in Lucerne, Switzerland, designed by Bertel Thorvaldsen and hewn in 1820–21 by Lukas Ahorn. It commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution, when revolutionaries stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris. It is one of the most famous monuments in Switzerland, visited annually by about 1.4 million tourists. In 2006 it was placed under Swiss monument protection.

Mark Twain praised the sculpture of a mortally wounded lion as "the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world."

    David was fantastic and really let us go our own pace! He showed us things we didn't even know existed and was extremely kind! Couldn't have asked for a better guide!

    Our guide, Dave provided an excellent overview of Lucerne. Very knowledgeable with history of the city. The beer tasting was fun. A local shop provided a beer flight tailored to each of our group.

    Glenn was a great guide. He took us all around Luzern, sharing about history and modern day. He also gave great recommendations for the rest of our stay in Luzern. Definitely a great way to get to know the town.
