Lake Luzern is synonymous to serenity. We had visited Lucerne in the summer of 2015 and took a boat ride in the Lake Luzern on our way back from Mount Pilatus. It was amazing - with spectacular views all around. I'd call the lake as the heart of the city Lucerne. You can go for a early morning walk along... More

Arrived in the afternoon to walk the Church Bridge, oldest covered bridge in Europe. The town along the water and the Lake are picturesque. Sunset was phenomenal with colors thrown across the mountains. The town was decorated for Christmas with lots of shoppers about. My favorite town so far.

After coming down from Mt. Rigi, don't take the train back to Lucerne, take the boat trip. The lake is surrounded by mountains and fresh air.

Went for a run along the lake. The snow covered mountain view is an amazing backdrop. There was a nice walkway around the lake.

I can recommend honestly a cruise on lake Lucerne to everyone in particular when the weather it's great you will see all the mountains surrounding the lake also all the nice villas and hotels lined up so beautifully. Whole dimension you will realise only once you are on the lake.Great experience.

I highly recommend visiting this lake and if you are able to take the boat trip around it I would also recommend that too. This is also a great spot for picknics/bbqs.

We were fortunate that the leaves were changing with the season but still on the trees lining the shoreline. Together with the mountains... More
