Lean back and enjoy a cruise on Lake Lucerne. Mystical tendrils of mist, colourful trees and warm sunshine: welcome to autumn on the lake.

With events such as the Lucerne Autumn Fair, the Cheese Market and the Chestenechilbi chestnut fair in Greppen, autumn is a time of gastronomic as well as exciting experiences. The traditional autumn transhumance is particularly worth catching: it's when the alp herdsmen and women return with their animals from the summer pastures up in the mountains to the valleys. The villages put on festivals to welcome the processions featuring splendidly decorated cattle.
