“Stunning lake in a stunning town”
Review of Lake Luzern

Ranked #2 of 97 things to do in Lucerne

Reviewed 16 January 2018

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 Alps were stunning. Try to get up high though to truly take in the lake and the mountains. And don't forget to walk around the town, either; really pretty town with lots of charm.

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 that they were not running at that time of year due to the cold weather. During the limited time that the skies were clear and the sun was shining, the mountain background was gorgeous.

Beautiful and very large. Best way to see the Lake. The tour boat has a warf right at the town. Their appear to be several boats operating..

Surely the best lake view and the second prettiest city ever visited
Mountains snow green and amazing buildings

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....
