Out on Lake Lucerne

Lake Lucerne is in found in the heartland of Central Switzerland and has been integral to the area’s shipping industry since the Middle Ages. Whilst the lake used to carry ships laden with materials from the nearby quarries, the Gotthard railway saw the lake fall out of use as an industrial site. Now the lake is used for tourism - we recommend catching a  boat trip on one of the 5 paddle steamers, some of which are more than 100 years old. If you prefer activity holidays, book accommodation in Switzerland close to Lake Lucerne. Fabulously diverse, you will find all kinds of water activities at the lake. The Lake is great for fishing holidays, as well as for fun trips like canoe trips, windsurfing and diving tours for experienced divers.
