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!

travelled from Lucerne all the way to fluelen using the tell pass, amazing scenery , the water is so clear in the lake you can see the bottom during most of the journey , sat outside , didn't feel the need to upgrade to first class as it is all the same mountains and views no matter where you sit...

The lake is best explored onboard the ferry. The 360-degree view is spectacular and made for fantastic photos. You can also order light meals and drinks onboard. Make sure you bring your outerwear along as it can get quite chilly out there.

If you are in the area, you probably will end up taking a cruise either going to one of the other towns or coming back. There are private cruise companies and there are public transport ferries. Both give you the same view and good service. The lake and its cruise is nice relaxing experience.

We arrived late in the afternoon and our Trafalgar Tour had a boat waiting. The peaceful trip around the lake was a great introduction to this must visit city in Europe.

This lake is so beautiful and peaceful, watching the swans and ducks swim along. Very relaxing area watching people walk their dogs and kids play along the lake.
