Explore the town's medieval defenses on your visit to The Nine Towers. One of the towers houses the oldest city clock, built by Hans Luter in 1535--it's allowed to chime every hour exactly one minute before all the city clocks. Four of the towers are open to the public, and you can climb the steep and narrow staircases in two of them to reach panoramic views of the surrounding city. Check the website, or call ahead for opening and closing hours prior to your visit. To visit The Nine Towers on your trip to Lucerne, use our Lucerne trip itinerary tool .

The Nine Towers Reviews
Schon so viele Male in Luzern gewesen, doch nun das erste Mal auf die Türme gestiegen und den Wehrgang überquert. Es lohnt sich noch mehr bei schönem Wetter. Auch bei Schlechtwetter zu empfehlen. Man ... more »Been to Lucerne so many times, but now for the first time climbed the towers and crossed the defensive aisle. It's worth even more in fine weather. Recommended even in bad weather. Imagine the means by which these buildings were created many years ago!
passeggiata non impegnativa anche se in salita, sembra di non essere più in città molto suggestivo salire sulle torri e ammirare l'immenso panorama more »non-committal walk, even if uphill, it seems to be no longer in the very charming city to climb the towers and admire the immense panorama
