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.

If you are in Lucerne, you have to visit the lake itself. Its well worth looking out for the one hour boat trip that gives you a good idea of how large an area it actually is. The water is crystal clear and good enough to drink! Bars and coffee shops are all nearby and the train station is literally on its doorstep so great for a day visit from another of the great Swiss locations.

Take the ferry (which is fee with Swiss Pass) and take in the gorgeous views. We took it twice, once to Vitznau (Mt Rigi) and another time to Fluelen on our way to Lugano.

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.
