“Great scenic grandiose view”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

A combination of scenic view of the luxurious old buildings and the crystal clear water plus the signature grandiose mountains of Switzerland!
If you're in Luzern, make sure to do the Lake cruise for this is the most wonderful thing you'll experience in Switzerland.
A 30 minutes lake cruise will definitely make your day for you will see the nice and great views of Luzern.
Make sure to bring your jackets for the weather can be tricky sometimes and it might be that the lake wind can be freezing cold in some areas.

“Especially spectacular if the skies are clear”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

You're in for a treat if you've never been to Luzern. It's jaw-droppingly beautiful, and walking along the shore is peaceful and refreshing, just near the city center. It's picture perfect, like the towns depicted by Hergé and Miyazaki. If you are fans of theirs, you'll know what I mean. This is the prototype of their depictions :)

“Lake cruise”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Opt for the 1hour cruise as art of the Golden Tour. Liked the beauty of the lake, but not the crowds on the boats.

“Ferrry Ride to Weggis”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We traveled about 45 minutes by ferry to Weggis, then turned around and came back just to enjoy the scenery. The weather was threatening so we enjoyed being able to stay out of the rain and had beer, wine and snacks on board. The ride was free as part of our Eurail Pass since we had used the pass for trains on the day of the ferry ride. There were several stops including a beach at which you could get off the ferry.

“Kapellbrücke(Chapel Bridge)”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

After raining for near a whole day, it turned better the next day. Walked around the Chapel Bridge, found that it was kind of peaceful, really enjoy it. The scenery was gorgeous.
