Since the city straddles Reuss River, it features several bridges. the most famous of which is Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrucke) - 14th century (constructed in 1333) wooden bridge with length 204 m (669 ft). It is Europe's oldest covered bridge. Part of the bridge is Wasserturm (Water Tower) - 13th century fortification and current museum with paintings from 17th century depicting events from the history of Lucerne.

Spreuer Bridge (Mill Bridge) zigzags across Reuss. Built in 1408, it has a series of medieval-style paintings of the 17th century. The bridge has a small chapel in the middle (added in 1568).
