Top 3 travel tips
Lake Lucerne lies in the middle of Central Switzerland and is thus the cultural and economic centre. With a shore length of around 150 kilometres, there is literally (almost) nothing here you can't do! The lake offers you a fine selection of outdoor swimming pools for swimming, various boat clubs where you can row, motorboat or sail and in the south of the lake you will find ideal conditions for windsurfing. Even diving is possible at different places of the lake!2. A day trip to Lucerne
The snow-covered mountain peaks at your back, Lake Lucerne at your feet and a unique medieval architecture - Lucerne is not regarded for nothing as an absolute must on your holiday in Central Switzerland. Above all, the beautiful old town with the legendary 14th century Chapel Bridge and the Musegg Wall are worth exploring during a long walk.3. A visit to Meggenhorn Castle
Jump from Lucerne onto one of the steamboats on Lake Lucerne and drive to the Meggenhorn Castle Residence. The beautiful complex is surrounded by extensive meadows and woods and appears almost like a fairy tale, with its stately 18th century castle, the castle chapel and the lovingly maintained castle gardens. Here you can even celebrate your wedding before going on your honeymoon in the holiday home!
