This is a splendid body of water. Lots of moods -- dappled in the rain, misted with rising fog, crystal clear when calm. There is a wonderful quality to the lake -- one of those things that's hard to describe. Of course, it's not just...More

Lake Lucerne is the most beautiful lake I have ever seen. My opinion is it is prettier than lake Geneva.

Great pit stop to take stunning pictures with Mount Rigi in the background. If you have extra time you can book a boat to see the lake more.

This is one of the best lakes that I have been to. Whichever way you look, the view is just magnificent. I really recommend hiring a motor boat and just going out in the lake, as that’s very relaxing.

Best way to enjoy the lake is to take one of the cruises that start near the train station. These are generally free for Swiss Travel Pass holdres. It has breathtaking views.

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.
