Lucerne, Switzerland

The Chapel Bridge is a covered wooden footbridge spanning diagonally across the Reuss River. The bridge was named after the nearby St. Peter's Chapel. A fire destroyed most of the bridge in 1993 and many of the unique internal paintings which dated back to th 17th century. After the fire, the Kapellbrücke was restored and is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe, as well as the world's oldest surviving truss bridge.
