The water in this lake is crystal clear as it is in all the lakes and rivers we have seen in Switzerland. The whole country seems to have undergone a spring cleaning.

Bürgenstock not as a village but as a resort for the view on lake Lucerne can also be recommended. Furthermore there is also the glas factory in Hergiswil and the hicking trail with astonishing views from the Klewenalp.
