The boat ride on Lake Luzern can be relaxing, especially if you have spent considerable time walking around the town. There were audio devices available, but after trying to find one that would function properly, several of them, I gave up on the narration and decided to enjoy the scenery. Taking photos is sometimes a challenge, because some passengers have no concerns about jumping in front of you without warning. Persistence is the key.

Lake Lucerne is a huge gorgeous lake with a backdrop of mountains in Switzerland. It is so very beautiful. We took a 4.5 hour boat ride (there are many different trips to choose from, with varying lengths) around the lake, and it just is more beautiful at each turn, with many small towns and villages available to explore.

The scenery on the shores with unbelievably green and forrested mountains in the background is spectacular. The glacial fed water is clean and clear. Century old side paddle ferries powered by their original engines are amazing. Not to be missed!!

One of the cleanest lakes. It is huge. A dinner cruise in the lake was the highlight.
It was an excellent experience with good food and good ambience.We got a chance to see many small places which otherwise one would not visit. It was a good opportunity to take beautiful pics especially at the sun set time

So much to see. Take a walk around the walk and enjoy the scenery. Enjoy the parks, cafes and beach.

Even though I came to Switzerland to hike the mountain peaks and revel in the panoramic out-of-this-world vistas, i also wanted to take to lake transport from Luzerne to Mt. Rigi but I ended up coming in from the other side of the mountain, so I took the boat only from Weggis to Vitznau and then across to the other side )on my way to Stans).

But it was so fantastic! So stunning! So scenic! Gorgeous!!

And such a pleasure to enjoy the ride!!

The boat is gorgeous and a pleasure to board and the ride was so so much fun!!

It was so worth it!!

The staff is so professional!!

Within less than a half an hour, I enjoyed the view, the sea, the breeze and the staff and observed the inner workings of the boat.

To go to Mt. Rizi- start @ Luzerne.

Overall: a great experience either before or after a full day of hiking Mt. Rigi.

See my photos!!

The cost of the boat ride around the lake is pricey. I suggest, if you're touring, get a Swiss pass for all public transportation. Its a few hundred dollars, but you'll save in the end. You can only buy it outside of Switzerland. The lake tour is beautiful and you can get off the boat to visit the local hamlets. You are trapped on the boat. You can eat on the boat.

Very clear and calm water. Love the boat horns you hear throughout the city at varied times. You can appreciate the color of the water at the dam.

This lake holds the key to one of the most beautiful cities in the world. That's saying allot since I've traveled to 80 countries. Take a boat ride or a walk around it. It's a must stop in Switzerland.

Lake Luzern is gorgeous - similar to the Italian lakes to the south. Steamers to virtually every port on the lake are available, although a bit on the pricey side - especially if you choose first class.
