No visit to Lucerne, Switzerland is complete without walking across the world’s oldest truss bridge. You will hear the wooden boards creak below your feet while staring up at the 17th century paintings within triangular frames. The Kapellbrücke, also called Chapel Bridge, was built across the Reuss River in 1333. In the background are the Wasserturm water tower and the majestic Swiss Alps. The swimming swan is a picturesque accent.
