Take advantage of the many mountains around Lake Lucerne to explore the beautiful countryside on foot in summer and experience the region on two boards in winter. Most mountains are served by mountain railways, such as the Vitznau-Rigi Railway, which was opened in 1871 and is still the steepest rack railway in the world. The mountains Pilatus, Stanserhorn, Rigi and many more offer beautiful viewing platforms.

Offers in and on the lake

You can use the lake not only for swimming or to explore by excursion boat. Because here the most different water sports possibilities, like rowing, motorboat, canoe and water ski drive, are offered. Windsurfing and diving are also possible at the lake.

Top 5 travel tips

1. Take a stroll through the city of Lucerne

In Lucerne you can take a stroll through the city and visit a number of interesting sights, such as the Ritter Palace or the Chapel Bridge with its octagonal water tower, which is considered the city's landmark. Other highlights are the Picasso Museum and the Richard Wagner Museum, which is housed in the composer's villa.

2. Visit a place steeped in history

A popular sight on Lake Lucerne is the Rütli. This is a mountain meadow on which, according to legend, the alliance of the three original cantons with the Rütli oath was made. The Rütli is located in the municipality of Seelisberg, on the western shore of the Lake of Uri, which is an arm of Lake Lucerne.

3. Pay a visit to the famous castle residence

You will find a wonderful building on the headland between Lake Lucerne and Lake Küssnachtersee, at the entrance to the Lucerne Bay. The Meggenhorn Castle lies idyllically on a rock between meadows and woods. The ensemble consists of the castle, a castle chapel and the surrounding magnificent gardens with vineyards. The best way to reach the Meggenhorn Castle is by boat, as it has its own landing stage, which is also worth a visit with its half-timbered boathouses from the 19th century.

4. To the Queen's Chapel

The Astrid Chapel is located at the southern entrance to the village of Küssnacht, between the lakeshore and Luzernerstraße. It is a memorial chapel inaugurated in 1936, built in honour of Astrid of Sweden, Queen of Belgium. She lost her life here in a car accident in 1935. Next to the chapel is a memorial site and a meadow with a memorial cross.

5. Getting to know traditions better

Around the year there are several festivities that are held at Lake Lucerne in the different communities. One of them is the Ennetbürger Alpabzug in September, during which the animals are taken from the Alps to the valley. This annual event is accompanied by decorated cattle and a huge festival where there are market stalls with fried sausages, fried cheese and alpine macaroons. There will also be a theme exhibition in the community hall, alphorn blowers, flag wrestlers and a milking competition. For many children the petting zoo of the festival is a real attraction.
