An evening spent around Lake Luzern is memory worth a lifetime. Apart from the beautiful lake itself, so many places around the lake worth your time too.

Lake Lucerne compliments the small city of Lucerne very well and fits in very picturesquely at the foothills of the snowy Alps. A must-visit place and sure for photo spots! The cruise on the lake is also a must do as it takes you closer to nature !

Wee took a spur of the moment ferry ride from Lucerne city centre to Vitznau and return as the we had a (rare) clear winter day in the middle of February. This took about 2 hours as a round trip, but you can easily hop off at one of the small towns along the way, take a walk and hop... More

Have visited Luzern a few times now and always have a fantastic time. Views from the lake are stunning! Taking a boat trip is the best way to explore all the area has to offer. In summer paddle steamers run on the lake which is magnificent. Highly recommend a visit!

Regardless of which side of the lake you are, you get a great view! If the weather is good, go on the side of the old town (next to the Kappelbrucke) and enjoy one of the cafes/restaurants along the lake where you can sit on the sun. If you feel like feeding the birds, get with you some seeds/bread and... More

We went on a boat ride on Lake Lucern on a beautiful sunny afternoon in October. The scenery was absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended.
