Not enough battery in the camera to capture the boat trip to Rigi on the lake. Just so amazing will be the highlight of our trip.

Serene, scenic, walkable beautiful. What else can I say. GO! This is not a large city, but it has so much to offer. It is very walkable, has an incredible history, a diverse architecture (starting with buildings from the 1400s), and very nice people.

This lake is surrounded by mountains and small villages. There are many opportunities to take boat rides to small villages and then go for a hike. From Luzern you can also walk along the lake and enjoy the beauty of the mountains.

If you want to a nice relaxing day rather trotting around, a cruise on the lake can be pleasant but take along a coat because it can be very cold on the lake with the wind blowing.

Take the boat trip on Lake Lucerne where you will witness majestic mountains emerging from calm blue waters and billowy white clouds sweeping the peaks. We took the boat to Weggis, a small Swiss village. Quaint and quiet with beautiful architecture and landscape. Just like a fairy tale! A great way to see Lucerne and surrounding villages.

Took the boat around the lake. Once the fog burned off, we were treated to spectacular views. Highly recommend to those looking for a relaxing activity.

For many travellers, mountains define switzerland. All major attractions are on mountains. But don't forget the waterways are a major part of switzerland as well. Lake Lucerne is epitome of them all.. Huge mountains on both sides, small towns that rely on boats to take them to other parts of the town... If you have taken a swiss pass, there... More

Lucern epitomizes all the beauty that Switzerland is so well known for. An absolutely stunning lake, complete with swans and ducks and with mount Pilates as a back drop . It doesn't get much better than this. The lake is absolutely clear and still. For a great view at night, go to the Schweizerhof quay across the seebrucke and gaze... More

I had only one day in Lucerne, and did not get to everything I intended to see, but found time for a delightful one hour cruise on the beautiful lake. The day was gorgeous, my Swiss Pass covered the trip, I had a tasty beer as I listened to the audio commentary, very useful (the latter) for a first-time visitor... More

It is just in front of our hostel. Lake area is quite and green. We like the serenity of the lake. We had taken boat ride to enjoy the sun set.
