If you are in Luzern you must go sailing. We hired Dobler Ingold to take us out sailing on Lake Luzern. Our skipper was Jurgan. He had great stories and even gave us tips on how to sail. We had our two young boys with us and they loved it. The views will not dissapointed!!

We took the steam paddleboat from Luzern to Weggis and back. It was a beautiful ride on a historic boat. The trip to Weggis was around 40 minutes were we got off, waited 10 minutes and caught another steam paddlewheel boat back to Luzern. We were amazed with the steam engine which you can watch in operation. We were even... More

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.
