Intro

The Water Tower, Chapel Bridge and Musegg Wall dominate the historical skyline of the city of Lucerne. However, the best view of the lake basin can be enjoyed from the path that runs along the Musegg Wall.

The Musegg Wall and the nine Musegg Towers formed part of the town’s fortifications and today, visitors and locals can walk along many sections of the ramparts. The old natural stone walls provide a valuable and truly special habitat for endangered plants and animals, including jackdaws, common swifts and bats. There is also a Musegg Wall newspaper and guided tours are available.

Directly behind the wall lies the Hinter Musegg Farm – a chance to experience farm life in the heart of the city, with a farm shop, eatery and animals. The farm is organic and open stable doors offer visitors a glimpse into species-appropriate husbandry. Children and families can see alpacas, Highland cattle, mini pigs, hens and goats, while also getting a chance to work on the farm. This offer is available to school groups as well. Those wishing to find out more about the animals living here can follow the educational trail and solve a quiz to discover fascinating facts.
