Nice tranquil Lake. You can watch ducks around the sides of the lake, and also take a boat ride around the lake. The ride is approx 45 minutes and quite peaceful

Love this lake. So much to see and do here. Hire a small boat from the town end or get on a ferry or two, swim if your brave enough and don’t mind very cold but crystal clear water Whats not to enjoy here.

This is the lake that surrounds the city in one side. Lot of young people roam around and relax by the side. Find few boats too, but all are anchored. Nice place.

If you don't want to do a boat ride on the lake but still get a sense of it, get the number 24 bus from the train station and do the round trip.

Our river cruise guide arranged a small boat ride on Lake Luzern. It was a cloudy, sometimes rainy day. It still was worth the time to see all the beautiful sites. I do not remember the name of the boat company. They were very nice...More

I highly recommend taking a boat ride on Lake Luzern. Take in the beauty of the white mountain tops, the green grass, all from the blue water.

While it's good to stroll along, I recommend you splurge for a boat ride. Simply stunning and the water is so clean.

Nice place to sit by the lake. Good view. With the right company, it’s a good day spent. Be careful of the birds around.
