The Musegg wall with its nine towers is part of the ramparts built in the 14th century to protect the town of Lucerne - as is the Chapel Bridge. The wall is astoundingly well preserved, and standing up on one of the towers you can imagine the strategies and worries of the townspeople then. The wall and four towers are open to the public during the warmer part of the year. The wall begins with the so-called Nölli tower in the west above the Geissmatt bridge, and ends at Museggstrasse 7, at the eastern end of the old town. The accessible towers from west to east are: the Männli tower, adorned with a figure of a soldier (the little man or 'Männli'), the Wacht tower, the Zyt tower with its clock dating from 1535 and the Schirmer tower.
Accessible 08:00 - 19:00, April to October.
