The Chapel Bridge (German: Kapellbr�cke) is a covered wooden footbridge spanning diagonally across the Reuss River in the city of Lucerne in central Switzerland. Named after the nearby St. Peter's Chapel, the bridge is unique since it contains a number of interior paintings dating back to the 17th century, although many of them were destroyed along with most of the centuries old bridge in a 1993 fire. Subsequently restored, the Kapellbr�cke is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe, as well as the world's oldest surviving truss bridge.It serves as the city's symbol and as one of Switzerland's main tourist attractions.
