The inside story

The Kapellbrücke is one of Lucerne's most famous landmarks. On the inside, it is decorated with paintings colorfully representing Switzerland's history. Unfortunately, the majority of the original paintings were destroyed in a fire in 1993 when most parts of the bridge went up in flames. Only the two bridgeheads and the water tower were saved. However, within only eight months, the missing pieces were reconstructed and the bridge reopened in April 1994.

The wooden bridge runs from the Lucerne Theater at the south bank of the Reuss River to the St Peter's Chapel at the town hall quay and shapes the cityscape like no other landmark in Lucerne.
