The boat rides are included with Swiss rail passes and Tell Passes and lots of other passes. Definitely take a ride! You can get off at any number of places and catch a boat back, or just stay on the boat the whole time. The third part of the lake is the most spectacular and highly recommended. You can train...

The lake is absolutely beautiful. We did not swim in it, we were there in December so a bit too cold. It is worth seeing.

It is the serene beauty of the place which takes your breath away. We went around the Lake Lucerne on a two hour boat cruise starting/ending in front of the Lucerne station and it was worth it. As part of the Swiss Rail pass, we didn't pay anything extra for the boat and just showed our swiss rail pass and... More

I love this place - there is something for everyone - the lake itself is gorgeous and graceful - the train ride, the local architecture, farmlands, small hotels and lovely restaurants are just a few wonders to explore when you visit. Ride a bike - Take the cog rail to Pilatus - drink the water - from the local faucets!

The entire area in and around Lake Luzern is breathtakingly beautiful. A great way to experience this is via a boat ride, with audio that provides some specific details about the history, etc. of the lake and surrounding areas.

I took a two and a half hour boat trip on Lake Luzern. The views were great. With each stop the boat got less and less crowded. Lots of nice photo opportunities as you cruise along the lakeshore.
