The Kapellbrücke(Chapel Bridge) is a symbol of Lucerne and one of the most visited landmarks of Switzerland. It was built in 1333 as part of the city's fortifications and is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe. The 204m long bridge, named after the nearby St. Peter's Chapel, crosses the Reuss River diagonally.
In 1993, the bridge was almost completely destroyed by fire but has been rebuilt after.

This bridge is really awesome! I have written a blog entry about it as well. Lucerne is such a beautiful city and one of my favourites. Thank you for bringing back a nice memory.
