Decided to undertake a cruise with lunch on Lake Lucerne. Scenery was quite spectacular and the just under two hour cruise was well worth the cost of the trip. We had the three course lunch as part of the cruise. The food was well presented and quite good. The cost of the lunch CHF 106 without drinks was expensive. Still... More

Most beautiful place I've been to, what better way to see Lucerne than on a evening cruise on the lake. Best way to relax enjoy a couple of beverages soak up the sun set and Lucerne's amid beauty! #Noregrets#totalrelaxation

A very lovely place Lucerne is one of Switzerland’s prettiest destinations, well deserving a day’s exploration of its historic sites. Then head to the hills of the Bernese Oberland and soaring Swiss Alps. We enjoyed to our hearts content the most scenic views of the Lake surrounded by beautiful and colourful mountains Mount Pilatus in the Swiss Alps.

I visited Lucern on a sunny day with my wife on our Europe tour, this place so peaceful yet full of life, the small eating joints on side of lake were just amazing, And Old town with modern day restaurants and all the surroundings was like a mini heaven.

Pilatus or Mt’s Rigi, a relaxing cruise around Lake Lucerne provides breathtaking Alpine scenery, quaint and charming villages, and the jade green waters of this alpine lake. Our hotel concierge suggested we take... More

It was a bright and shiny day in the morning. Clouds started gathering around noon. It was quite windy when we were at Titlis. It was not a tourist's dream day, we were discussing amongst ourselves. Under the depressing cloud cover we retired early at a hotel just overlooking the Lucerne Lake. Friends, but the nature had so much in... More
