The very beautiful Luzern lake, breathtaking views from the boat trip on the lake of the Alps, some with snow still. It looked very beautiful and the whole lake and trip is very picturesque. A must see and do in Luzern.

Everywhere you look is just simply beautiful. If you can, jump on a boat, sit on the deck and just take it all in.... Amazing!

Absolutely gorgeous views! Time was running short before sunset but I could have spent hours here taking photos, eating lunch, exercising, walking with my wife or just watching my kids play along it's shores!

I'm lucky enough to call this area home. My recommendation is to take the boat from Luzern to Fluelen. Or at least Brunnen. But the last bit from Brunnen to Fluelen is the most spectacular.

Even on the grayest winter day this setting is gorgeous! I can only imagine what it looks like (or Google some images!) in the summer. The mountains are majestic in the background.

The lake with the mountains surrounding it makes a lovely spot to spend a couple of days and get away from the corset of rules and regulations that are so typical for Switzerland. Enjoy the views from a boat or from one of the restaurants near the water.

People usually go about having boat rides around the lake, we decided to travel into the residential area which was just by the lake. Got a couple of picnic items from the train station and off we went! Take bus 21 from the main train station - get off at Schiffstation which is approx 15 - 20 mins later. The... More
