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 Reviews & Ratings

  • I’ve been to Lucerne twice, once in summer,once in winter and the lake never disappoints. One of my favorite places on Earth.

  • A beautiful lake in the heart of the city. Walkable distance from city centre. Great views. You can lunch/dinner on lake boats/ferries. A list visit city if visiting Switzerland.

  • Nice place for boat rides. Good views

  • It's the best place guys. Switzerland is one above all.. The clear blue water... Sunshine... Clean air... Flowers all around.... And the beautiful cruise... If you haven't gone to this place you haven't visited anything... Generally visitors just cover one or two cities... Lucern is left out.... But believe me it's the gem worth visiting... At least 2 days in Lucern.

  • Breathing beauty of incredible blue water touching the sky! So many mountain peaks to enjoy the fascinating views.
