Great summer-day activity! We took Golden Round-trip and had a best day in Lucerne! Lake views are so vivid and beautiful.

We stopped on our way to Mt. Pilatus to admire the lake & the view of Mt. Pilatus & the surroundings. It was so beautiful, serene, calming to experience. Wish we had more time to just walk a little. But nonetheless, it was a view to remember.

The lake is easily accessible and right next to the central train station. The water is crystal clear and gives amazing views of the surrounding mountains. The cruise on the lake can be taken but is generally priced high

The lake was a wow nature for us. The water is crystal clear, really lived up the "crystalisation" reputation. The water could get quite deep, the surrounding views are just like a lively paintings. A trip of lifetime!

Such a beautiful lake in the center of the city with many activities going on constantly. Nice place to walk along the lake and hangout at many places.

This trip was short, sweet, and I wish we would have stayed longer. Definitely one of the top cities to visit in Switzerland!

Absolutely stunning lake with crystal clear, vivid water. We ran around one side of the lake from Lucerne early in the morning and it truly was a sight to behold. Would make a gorgeous early morning stroll.

It's hard to miss the beauty of Lake Lucerne if you're visiting the town. We were there in November, so it was a bit cold. However, we were able to appreciate the surroundings of the lake, the beautiful mountains, the old town and new town parts of Lucerne. There are several amazing lakes in Switzerland and Lake Lucerne is nothing... More
