We got the boat from Lucerne to go up Mount Rigi. The scenery was lovely and we were fortunate to have cloudless clear blue skies. Warm weather for february meant we could sit out on deck albeit with gloves on! I would recommend this trip.

Beautiful Lake Lucerne is the principal lake of central Switzerland, and has an area of 44 square miles, and is 24 miles long. A boat trip on this beautiful lake is a must.
