  • Take a lake cruise, perhaps with one of the typical antique boats and you can admire it in all its beauty.

  • we arrived to Luzerne after a river cruise for a few days, took a wonderful boat ride around the lake, we all were a little over welmed by large group of people who over took the boat 
  • From the center town of Lucerne you can see and appreciate the Lake, when it comes out of the center you can walk along the shore of the Lake, very nice. Various services are offered to navigate, I do not take any but look good and that are worth
