The Chapel Bridge
Lucerne is especially well-known for its wooden
bridges. Today, the Chapel Bridge runs from the
Luzerner Theater on the southern bank of the
Reuss to St. Peter's Chapel at Rathausquai, zigzagging
as it passes the older Water Tower.
Built in the middle of the 14th century, the Chapel
Bridge rests on stone columns beneath the
river's surface. Originally, the bridge was a part
of Lucerne's fortifications. For this reason, the
bridge's lakeside wall is higher than the other
side; that made it easier for soldiers to rest their
weapons on top of it. Two additional bridges
served similar purposes during the Middle Ages:
the Spreuer Bridge, which links Kasernenplatz
with the Mühlenplatz, and the Hof Bridge, taken
down in the mid-1800s, once linked Schwanenplatz
to St. Leodegar's Church.
What is especially remarkable about Lucerne's
wooden Bridges is their artwork: the triangular
paintings under the eaves of their rooftops. The
series of works decorating the Chapel Bridge
was created in the first quarter of the 17th century.
Municipal clerk and scholar Renward Cysat
developed the concept. Artist Hans Wägmann
painted the pictures and councilman Hans Rudolf
von Sonnenberg wrote the accompanying
text. The images show scenes illustrating the
history of Lucerne and Switzerland, as well as
legends from the lives of city patrons Mauritius
Unfortunately, a fire on 18 August, 1993, destroyed
a large portion of the bridge and the
