A unique moment: alone on the Kapellbrücke. The Kapellbrücke (Chapel Bridge) is a covered wooden footbridge spanning the river Reuss diagonally in the city of Lucerne in central Switzerland. The bridge is unique in containing a number of interior paintings dating back to the 17th century. The Kapellbrücke is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe. It serves as the city's symbol and as one of Switzerland's main tourist attractions - usually crowded but empty on March 28, 2020.
