Attraction: Chapel Bridge
The Kapellbrücke (literally, Chapel Bridge) is a covered wooden footbridge in Lucerne, Switzerland, that spans the Reuss River diagonally. The bridge, named after the nearby St. Peter’s Chapel, is unusual in that it contains a number of interior paintings dating back to the 17th century, but several of them, along with a significant portion of the centuries-old bridge, were destroyed in a 1993 fire. The Kapellbrücke, which has since been rebuilt, is Europe’s oldest wooden covered bridge and the world’s oldest surviving truss bridge. It is the city’s emblem and one of Switzerland’s most popular tourist destinations.
