I think lake Luzern is more beautiful than Lake Zurich. I travelled 3 1/2 hours on boat from Luzern to Fluelen on Lake Luzern and the journey was very wonderful.

We boarded the cruise boat which took us for an hourlong cruise with running commentary. They also have cruises of longer durations as well. Enjoyed the cruise and learnt a lot about the area.

We took a boat ride on the lake to see some of the sights. It would have been fantastic without the fog. I would suggest you take the trip later in the day when the fog has lifted.

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...More

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...More

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!!

Bürgenstock not as a village but as a resort for the view on lake Lucerne can also be recommended. Furthermore there is also the glas factory in Hergiswil and the hicking trail with astonishing views from the Klewenalp.
