Took one of the many day cruises to explore the lake. The one suggested to me by the concierge had individual audio and thus there was an explanation of all of the sites. It only took about an hour but was very memorable.

Picturesque and quite like everything about Switzerland. I travelled across the lake from Luzern to Pilatus Kulm and it was comfortable even though our boat was quite full. There's kind of magic about Swiss service - they can seet you at your ease effortlessly without you noticing.

Lake Lucerne is everything you want it to be. You wish to chill with friends and throw back a few, there are great pubs lining the boulevard. You wish to have a romantic dinner, what better than the flower-lined Chapel Bridge in the background, with swans for company! You wish to sit back and people watch, just sit in one... More

We spent a few hours walking around the lake, stopping off for a drink and a meal along the way, the views are superb.

Stay at a place that faces west across the lake to enjoy amazing sunsets (Vitznau is good). The best ones have a bit of cloud that changes from orange to red as the sun goes down. Then next morning, get up in the surrounding mountains to enjoy even better views. It deserves more than a long weekend, but if that's... More

The Lake Luzern is one of the nicest lakes in the world. Make a ship tour of the whole Lake it is worth it. But wait for a sunny day.

Lake luzern is a must for all travellers to lucerne . An hour tour on the lake costs@ 25 francs per adult . It is a lovely way to soak in the surrounding mountains and castles without doing very much. Take a walk around the whole of the old town and don't forget to stop by the Lion and glacier... More
