The lake is in the middle of the town and the town is already facing the lake, you can see it from everywhere, you can take a cruise in there, but not during the winter all churches, shopping, restaurants, pubs and everything else is there and reachable

A boat trip around lake Lucerne is worth the money. We had Swiss rail passes so it was included but this boat trip gives you amazed no view of the surrounding mountains and the area around Lucerne. It covers so Much ground that you couldn't see walking and gives a different perspective.

We hired a pedal boat for an hour or so on Lake Lucerne. The weather was amazing and the water was incredibly clean and refreshing. Would highly recommend it. The surrounding area is stunning and you get some spectacular views from a boat on the lake.

My husband and I were in our honeymoon and had the most romantic time at Luzern. The place is picturesque. I recommend 2 days to sight see.

Beautiful and large lake. Boat trip (which is also used for transport) can reveal magnificent views. Do not miss it.

The lake is the main feature of Lucerne and is worth spending the time and money on taking a cruise around the lake to experience it. Seeing the city from on the water is a great experience. In addition, you have the ability to see the mountains and the lake side homes. There is also a statue of Jesus blessing... More

Enjoy the lake and the surroundings. It's unique, there are lots of day trip possibilities for the budget conscious just ask the helpful staff at the tourist office or boat office.

Great summer-day activity! We took Golden Round-trip and had a best day in Lucerne! Lake views are so vivid and beautiful.

We stopped on our way to Mt. Pilatus to admire the lake & the view of Mt. Pilatus & the surroundings. It was so beautiful, serene, calming to experience. Wish we had more time to just walk a little. But nonetheless, it was a view to remember.
