We aim to capture and explore as many historic and modern sights as possible, the medieval world famous Chapel Bridge considered to be one of the oldest, covered wooden bridges in Europe; the Museggmauer, a wall which has been preserved in its original, well-fortified state; the many town squares with its frescoes at the heart of its car-free old town; the dramatic lion monument; and the Culture and Convention Centre (KKL) with a futuristic architecture.
