Lake Lucerne - Review

A little outside of Lucerne, the ride to Lake Lucerne is just as picturesque as the destination. 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..

Lake Lucerne, Lucerne Reviews

  • This lake is gorgeous! When you look at it you wonder how anything on Earth can be this beautiful. We only stopped here to take pictures but it is so worth it; however, no camera can capture the beautiful colour of the water.

  • It's a wonderful place to visit you have lot of things to do like the cruise and other sightseeing. Strolling around the lake at morning admiring the scenic beauty itself is very pleasant.

  • Top tip - though it can be difficult to wake up early after a late night, if you can you will be able to see the effect of sunlight on the lake and the surroundings. It is hard to explain in words the beautiful sunrise unless you have seen it in your own eyes

  • Oh man. What should I say? It is one of the beautiful lakes that I have ever been. Definitely a boat ride is a must on this lake. Crystal clear waters with beautiful mountains around is very beautiful!

  • We enjoyed sitting along the Promenade watching people, boat traffic, the swans and tall Alp peaks across the water. What a lovely peaceful late afternoon. The water is clear and enjoyed by everyone and everything that can. The Promenade is within easy walking distance of the city center, several hotels, and many fine restaurants, but it feels like its out in the country. This is an easy place to relax and enjoy the moment.
