Clean and beautiful. Nice ride to Mount Rigi can give you a special taste of the lake. Shouldn't miss the visit to Weggis and Vitznau.

The boats are all clean with excellent choices of food, wine, and beer. As you sail on the Lake, the views of the alps are also breathtaking. So it is a great way to relax - sipping your white wine while taking on the spectacular views of the alps.

ohh it is sooo pretty. Numerous bridges (i remember at least 3) span over the lake & connect the two sides including the famous Chapel Bridge. We crossed from the new town side to the old town side through Chapel Bridge. There are several eateries & cafes to suit all budgets by the lake on the old town side. Take... More

Really scenic. The boat ride with beautiful scenic views everywhere - will the mountains as the backdrop, especially some of them snowcapped. It was a wonderful experience.

Lake lucern is beautiful. Quite a bit of walking areas around the lake in lucern also along the river Ruess with its old covered walking bridges. Back to the lake, swans an a variety of duck ps and waterfowl are plentiful. The water is clear to the bottom and is officially considered drinkable. Take a boat tour to see other... More

Based on the concierge's recommendation, my wife and I chose to take a tour of Lake Lucerne on a sleek, modern boat, the Saphir, that was built at Lucerne in 2012. The large floor to ceiling windows on both sides of the boat allowed the up obstructed views of the majestic mountains and the beautiful homes that lined the shores... More

You can take some of the sceduled boats on the lake, takes a long time to get from A to B but it offers you great views of the mountains. Try to discover the Eastern side of the lake.

the Vierwaldersee - four lakes of Luzern - are simply spectacular. I think you would be hard pressed to find another quite as beautiful. Snow capped mountains, clear waters, steamboat, modern ferries or sailboats will take you on a tour. Stop off for coffee or cool drink en route and walk about Weggis. Then hop back on the next ferry... More

A walk/ bicycle ride round the lake is a must and is very refreshing. The lake is lined with gardens full of colorful flowers. It is surrounded by mountains which adds to the beauty of the place.

This lake is simply beautiful! The color of the water is breathtaking. I was in a vehicle and had to take pictures as best I could. I knew this was a memory I had to have! A must see!
