What a lovely experience boarding the boat and travelling across Lake Lucerne. So much to see around the edges and then the vista of the beautiful snow capped mountains. It doesn't even matter if it's not the warmest of days because they provide warm wraps. Just loved the trip and thoroughly recommend it.

Very Serene and Calm lake. The Chapel Bridge on the lake is a good place to visit. Amazing weather and city. The tram system takes you all over Lucerne with great lake views all over.

The lake of Lucerne is stunning with lake, hills and snow capped mountain views. You can rent a paddle boat, cruise on a boat or walk along the lake.There's plenty of places to eat and drink and relax with picturesque views.

The Lake is found in the centre of the city and is easily accessible by foot. On a sunny day the promenade is a fantastic, but perhaps busy, place to be. You can get wonderful views of the mountains in the backdrop and observe the cruise ships depart throughout the day.

Defiantly book a hotel room with lake view, there are plenty of restaurants around the lake. Boat Trip around the lake is a must. Lucerne is such a pretty city.

Starting at the Lucerne train station and looking at the lake, you can go to the left and in about 0.5 km come to the start of an excellent, flat and wide walkway that provides a number of scenic lake views. I've walked along it in late winter and late spring, and both seasons provided attractive views. I liked the... More

It was a cool crisp winter afternoon when we visited. The lake was calm and the reflection of the boats, mountains and sky made for a beautiful scene. It is a nice leisure stroll along the lake front. If you are passing through take some time to spend at our on the lake.

Lake Luzern has wonderful views of all the mountain ranges. Be sure to check the festival schedule before you plan this trip if you do not like crowds. We were there during Carnival in February and it was a mite too crowded for us although fun.
