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.
As part of the bridge complex, the Chapel Bridge includes the octagonal 140 m (460 ft) tall water tower, which predated the bridge by about 30 years.
