Lake Lucerne



Idyllic bays, fjord-like rock faces and deep blue water - Lake Lucerne is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in Switzerland.
Surrounded by majestic mountains, Lake Lucerne is the fourth largest lake in Switzerland. With its branching arms and bays, its shape is reminiscent of a fjord landscape. Its unusual shape was created at the end of the last ice age by the erosion of the Reuss glacier. Lake Lucerne owes its name to the four cantons bordering it, which were formerly called Waldstätten: Uri, Schwyz, Unterwalden and Lucerne.


Enjoy the fresh sea air on a trip across Lake Lucerne. 5 paddle steamers, 12 motorboats, a panorama yacht, the new Diamant motorboat and the new Bürgenstock shuttle ship take you to the Lake Lucerne Nature Arena with top connections to the mountain railways on the lake all year round, whatever the weather. You can also experience musical and culinary highlights directly on the water on numerous course and special trips.
