no matter whether you are travelling as a family, only couples or single or with friends, the lake and everything arounfd the lake lucerne will attract and enthrall you. The views all over Switzerland doesnt need special mention, but the facilities and options around the lake are amazing and a day spent around lake lucerne wont be a day wasted!

There is nothing better than a stroll around the lake at any time of day. It's a must do! I love to watch all the well trained dogs and swans.

I haven't done it, but you can rent boats or go on tour cruises around the lake. The lake is much bigger than it appears from the center of Luzern.

This has got to be one of the most beautiful places on earth with the juxtaposition of summer warmth, snow capped mountains, and the serene Lake Luzern. We ended a two week European trip here and can't wait to go back. The people of this area are friendly and helpful and seen genuinely pleased to have visitors. I can't wait to go back!

Luzern is an ancient city and a wonderful place to wander at your leisure. There is so much to see, from the 13th century tower to ancient houses and inns, the riverfront, and the weekly street market. Visit confectioners who make the most amazing concoc-tions out of chocolate .. feed the swans ... and view the historic painted panels of the medieval bridge. The main railway station has a shopping concourse. Several museums display artifacts, paintings and documents from the earliest times and historic hotels and restaurants offer exceptional accommodation and food.

Great to be able to stay around this area as it is so beautifully lit up at night and the bridges look amazing both at night and during the day. Of course you must walk across the bridges to get to the other side and these historic bridges are amazing and have some plaques worth reading and they also provide great photo oportunities. Nice architecture surrounds the lakes with the mountain backdrops.
