Though wherever you look in Switzerland there is always something to see, But this place was an different experience. You got blue water and green trees all around and majestic overlooking mountains. Its very serene,relaxing and calm. Its an Spa for your eyes and soul.

We took the one-hour steamer boat ride to the mountain and then took the train up Mt. Pilatus. The boat ride was relaxing and the scenery beautiful! It was so much fun!

Lucerne is like a small but a very wonderful gift. You keep finding beautiful jewels inside it. Another beautiful stop when in town and what a serene beauty it is.

The first activity we embarked on wile visiting Lucerne was a boat trip across the lake. And boy was it worth it. The sights are absolutely beautiful and on a clear day you can see the peaks of the snow capped mountains. Just so peaceful and relaxing. An absolute must do in Lucerne.

Spent the whole day on paddle steamers sailing across Lake Lucerne stopping off at various locations on the way. Had lunch in Brunnen, returning after 66 years to find that there was nothing there from previous visit. Almost everything had been rebuilt and although attractive, it had loss the old Swiss look that I had memories of. Met lovely Swiss... More

Lucerne is a gem, stunning scenery, good food and plenty to do. Take a boat trip on the lake, use the chair lifts to... More
