First seeing the lake was at Chapel Bridge -- looking south towards the lake and the Alps in the background. It was morning, (sun in your eyes) the water was soothing while the city awoke. Returning in the evening, the coolness wasn't there yet but as the sun set it did. Evening dusk onbound, then the colors came out on... More

The boat tour was 25CHF per adult, a little pricey but the boat was lovely, clean, spacious and not too busy. It gave us a good view of all of the lake as we were only there for an afternoon. It takes an hour and there are refreshments avaliable on board.

Spent a morning wandering by the lakeshore near Lucerne town, before taking a boat ride out to Trieb, en route to Seelisberg. Breathtaking views all along. Little wonder that Switzerland is near the top of most tourists' must-see destinations.

If it's reasonably nice weather, you need to get out on the lake. Take any boat - literally, ANY boat - will do. The scenery is fantastic, and the lake has a very calming effect.

The most beautiful place ive ever been too, Just out of this world. Boating here is a must. Its just opposite the main station and a stones throw away from chapel bridge and a lane full of eating places! A must visit!

Easy to purchase tickets- at the edge of the Lake - very helpful staff with good recommendations. Choice of first class or second class tickets- second class was fine! Just meant you couldn't go up top! Places to sit inside or outside. Good clean toilet facilities onboard. Drinks available to purchase. Three hour round trip from Lucerne to Pilatus was... More

After a week sailing down the Rhine for a week, we spent a couple of nights here. Such a beautiful clean, fresh place to visit. Despite Switzerland being an expensive country, definitely visit if you've not been before.
