Just as we reached the top, there are 4 story building, in which level 1; a souvenir shop and ice-cave. Level 2 is a restaurant, and the highest bar in Europe. Level 3 was a watch shop and level is where you walk out onto the top of the mountain.

Next stop, The Lion Monument.

The Lion Monument, or the Lion of Lucerne, is a rock relief in Lucerne, Switzerland, designed by Bertel Thorvaldsen and hewn in 1820–21 by Lukas Ahorn.It was designed as a memorial for the mercenary soldiers from central Switzerland who lost their lives while serving the French king Louis XVI during the French Revolution.

Next, visit Chapel Bridge, the Landmark 1300s wooden bridge with grand stone water tower & a roof decorated with 17th-century art.

The bridge is famed as an architectural masterpiece, because of its wood construction and iconic covered style. It is the oldest covered bridge in Europe, dating back to the 14th century.

The bridge leads to the Water Tower, an octagonal structure that had many uses throughout time, serving as a torture chamber and prison for centuries. Today, it is considered to be the symbol of Lucerne and houses a small gift shop.

Shopping, free and easy time.
