Crossing along the Reuss River in Luzern, Switzerland is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe called Kapellbrücke or The Chapel Bridge. Being the world's oldest surviving Truss Bridge with a collection of 17th century paintings inside the bridge, Kapellbrücke is one of Switzerland's tourist attractions.

The bridge was originally constructed in 1333 as part of Luzern's fortifications to protect from attacks. The bridge was caught on fire on August 1993, destroying most of the paintings inside. The bridge was then rebuilt and reopened again to public on April 1994.
