Paddle boats and steamers in Lake Lucerne, view from the promenade opposite station.

Lucerne, Central Switzerland's most elegant city, offers everything from lake cruising to hiking in the mountains.
Breathtaking scenery with flower decked promenades and parks, picturesque lakeside villages and the famous town of Lucerne itself - few destinations can match the appeal of the "Vierwaldstättersee" (Lake of the Four Forest Cantons).
Lake Lucerne features the world's largest fleet of paddle steamers on an inland lake and their long tradition offers a relaxing way of getting about, as they ply their way between the lakeside villages. The lake is a method of travel linking the towns around the lake with paddle steamers that dodge the white swans for which Lucerne is famous
