What a beautiful lake! The water has an amazing color and it's so transparent! There are swans and ducks and it's surrounded by beautifully architetured buildings in one side and the mountain in the other. Just the perfect combination..

We were able to ride across the lake with our tour of Mount Pilatus. Definitely worth it. Lucerne, the lake, the mountains are simply spectacular.

Really beautiful area when the weather is ideal. Take a tour on the lake on a clear day and you won't be disappointed. We did our tour last minute with no reservations and it worked out great - went on the Saphir.

Two and one-half boat round trip was enjoyable with multiple stops and beautiful scenery. Somewhat pricey at $50 per person for 2nd class travel, but overall a good experience with a unique view of the area.

Absolutely loved the stroll along the lake with my family, looking at the snobbish swans who swim away when all you're trying to do is sit down and make friends (kd). Visited in Autumn and the different shades of red, orange and yellow on the trees made the view even more beautiful. If possible, maybe pack your lunch to eat... More

Went out on a boat with others - most of them went down to the lounge for drinks but a few of us stayed up top and absorbed the peace and the views and the reflections of the mountains on the water. Fantastic - saw a chalet I would love to live in - need to inherit some millions to... More

Foggy or clear, the lake is beautiful whether you are on it or by it on a train. The lake is clean and you can see to the bottom in shallow areas. As well, there are swans galore on the lake!

A wonderful lake, surrounded by beautiful mountains. You should go on a boat-trip from Küssnacht tu Luzern and/or back. Watch the scenery and have a coffee or any other drink during this perfect little trip. If you want a one-way-trip you simply go back to where you have started by a fast train - within 15 minutes you are back!... More

Lake Luzern did not send us into rhapsodies as we were coming from 3 days in Vevey on the banks of Lake Geneva/Lac Leman and 5 days in Lauterbrunnen. We found Brienzersee was also better
