What’s not to like?

One of Europe’s most breathtaking lakes. Beautiful green blue water. Snow capped mountains in the background. Amazing hikes all around. Luzern as a gorgeous and interesting main city on its shores. We spent a week in this neck of the woods and though it doesn’t come cheap in Switzerland, would love to come back again one day.

Can you drink the water ?
Aug 2020 • Solo
Beautiful clean and natural quality , I would say you could drink the water but I still recommend bottled water . The lake has many beautiful vantage points including bridges the pathways and of course the panoramic road , highly recommend the ship tour of the lake with the massive Swiss flag at the rear for photos .

Lake Lucerne in Switzerland is encircled by mountain
Oct 2020

Lake Lucerne in Switzerland is encircled by mountains making it quite similar to views that one sees in a Fjord landscape. There are plenty of boat cruises to pick your pick from and they are well worth the price, most last about 2 hours so make sure you have your camera handy. The lake is quite large with a total surface area of about 44 square miles so plenty to see as you cruise slowly along the smooth water. Of course the town of Lucerne is on the lake and definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Take the 1hr yacht
Apr 2021
This is a huge lake so take the 1hr yacht that brings you to the interesting parts without being too long and boring. Ideal for kids attention spans too.

Bring a bit to eat and drink and get a nice smooth boat around allowing you to see Lucerne and it’s architecture and surroundings from a different perspective.

Beautiful lake with great history which you can hear about if you download the required app which gives you the history as you sail. Beautiful to do on a sunny day of which there are plenty around this gorgeous area.

Beauty to behold
Sep 2020
Beautiful, clean, organized and friendly. Great variety of ferries to take to different little towns and villages on the lake. The scenery is beyond words... better than any postcard.

"Breathing picture in heart of Switzerland"
Jan 2020
Luzern is one of the most dazzling place in heart of Switzerland which each foreigner
definitely should visit. The whole city is surrounded by chain of Alps mountains and there amazingly lay the Lucerne river. To my opinion Lucerne is a breathing picture inviting us to wonder beauty of the world. In simple words I am speechless when come to describe about this lovely creation.💕

Tranquil steamer trip
Aug 2020
We travelled from Lucerne to Flüelen on vintage steamer Uri. Worth paying extra for first class - upper deck.

Spectacular lake
Aug 2020 • Family
I visited with my family for a couple of nights. We stayed in a beautiful hotel overlooking the lake & mountains & we travelled into Lucerne in the evening. The town was lovely with plenty of shops & restaurants & public transport is free if you are staying in local hotels. The whole lake & towns are amazing with picturesque views well worth a stay.

Long trips are better value for money; first class is worth it
Jul 2020 • Family
We did two boat trips on Lake Lucerne, both with the newest ship, Diamant. The first trip was from Hertenstein to Luzern 30 mins to go and 30 mins return, and we paid a stunning CHF 95 for two adults and two children. It was on a Sunday with beautiful weather and there was no place to sit on the boat. We found it disappointing and too expensive for such a short boat ride. The next day we did the 4 hour round trip around the whole lake, also starting from Hertenstein, where our hotel was located. We took first class tickets and paid CHF 214 for two adults and two children. Much more reasonable given the duration of the trip and the space available for first class passengers. We thoroughly enjoyed the round trip, despite the weather being less beautiful than the day before. Our advice: take the round trip; it is better value for money; as is a first class ticket.
