Many a poets swear by the beauty the lake emanates and you’ll be mad as a hatter if you don’t see it for yourself. With a promise for an indescribable view, at first sight, Lake Lucerne is reminiscent of a fjord (save the weather of course) that seems to extend its way to the mountains and make way around them.

Lake Lucerne has everything- majestic peaks, limestone cliffs, thick forest cover attracting Alpine wildlife and vast expanses of blue water. Rightly called the Lake of the Four Cantons in German, a cruise ship on Lake Lucerne is sure to make it to your bucket-list if it hasn’t already..
