A lake to swim in and enjoy the views of the mountains. The old paddle steamers are great to go on, with a good view of the machinery that drives them

Start with a paddle steamer in Luzern working your way around the lake the further you go the more mountains you will see, the scenery is fantastic after 3 hours or so you will arrive in Fluellan our favorite lake

This place has outstanding beauty. There is so much to see and do. It was busy but this did not detract from the enjoyment. There are plenty of boat trips to choose from and it is worth a tour further afield than just Lucerne harbour. There are great transport links with trains, buses, cable cars and cog railways.

We use the Swiss Pass and it is free for most of our boat rides. Very pleasant, scenic and quiet ride. Highly recommended as a way to slow down after long train ride from St Moritz.

We visited Zurich and after that we visited Luzern. Luzern was much more relaxed and casual than Zurich. Although we really loved Zurich, Luzern was more welcoming and accessible.
