Absolutely beautiful and picturesque town - Enjoy the food and drink along the lakeside or anywhere in the town and you will not be disappointed. Spend extra days if you can and absorb the SWISS hospitality and fresh air.

This is one of the best thing you can do in Luzern. The views are really beautiful along the boat ride. Swiss free pass is valid on the boat rides.

A truly beautiful experience just to be in the town and around the lake. I didn't take a boat tour, and instead just walked around 7km southwards on the south-western side (from the station and down). Was a beautiful day, and the views across the...More

The lake is lovely, although, reading the other reviews, I feel that I missed some particularly beautiful scenery by not taking a boat tour. During my three-day stay in early December, I didn't see boats going out (or coming in) for tours so I assumed...More

If ever in Basel Switzerland, take a direct train to Lake Lucerne, only 1 hour by train takes you to a beautiful lake with mountain view.... thoroughly recommend it....
