Long Description:
The water "spikes" are a mechanism built in 1859-60 that are lowered into or withdrawn from the water manually to regulate the water level of Lake Lucerne.

Technically, this is a unique sight. The so-called "spikes" are lowered into or withdrawn from the water manually to regulate the water level of Lake Lucerne. It was built in 1859-60, replacing the Reuss steps that channeled the water over the city mills.
