On our tour we visited the "Lowendenkmal", the Lion monument. The first photo is in front to the left of the sculpture.
More than 700 Swiss officers and soldiers died while defending the Tuileries Palace in Paris, where King Louis XVI, Marie-Antoinette, and their children were taken, after trying to escape the French Revolution in 1792.

In the early 1800s, the Danish artist Bertel Thorvaldsen was hired to sculpt a monument to the fallen Swiss Guards. His finest sculpture in a sandstone cliff, "Das Lowendenkmal".

The Lion Monument
Kapellbrucke, "Chapel Bridge" was built in 1333. It was nearly destroyed by careless workmen in a fire in 1993, but they did an excellent restoration/reproduction. The bordered background you see is Lisa at the entrance. The following photos were taken from the bridge and surrounding area.
