Winter Monday afternoon, bright sunshine and temperatures in the mid 10's, a walk from the main station in Luzern is well worth it. The mountains are wonderful to look at and the sunshine well worth taking in. It's a real detox after a retail therapy session. Highly recommended

I visited Lucerne in the mid nineties. Lake Luzern is just beautiful. A portion of the lake is surrounded by mountains. You can walk around some of the lake. It is also possible to take a boat around it, or take a water taxi. To get a feel for how large the lake is I would suggest the boat trip or if on a budget, take the water taxi that makes stops all around the lake and ends back at the dock near the train station. You should allow an hour to an hour and a half if you are doing the boat trip. Bring your camera and use the panorama option on it to really capture the full breadth of the lake.

This is a must see if in the area. Looks fake almost like you are inside a movie set. I was there with my wife years ago and I want to go back with my kids one day

During my one day tour in Lucerne city, I spent most of my time strolling through the path along the lakeside. From here I could see the other site of Lucerne city where i can see clearly the KKL Building (museum) and The Bahnholf (train station). Then I saw so many beautiful swan relaxing, swimming and strolling in the lake, the most excited about the swans was the kids, especially when the swans play near the lakeside. My feeling so peaceful when I look at the lake which offers a stunning view with the beautiful landscapes, especially when I look at the Alps with the white peak of Pilatus and Rigi. I saw a telescopes station near the lakeside, using this telescope we can see the mountains clearly. I saw many boats and ships cruising and some harboured, I said to myself to come here again for oneround trip cruise.

The lake is filled with stunning views. Take a stroll by the side and enjoy the scenery with the alps by the side.
