If you are in Lucerne, you have to visit the lake itself. Its well worth looking out for the one hour boat trip that gives you a good idea of how large an area it actually is. The water is crystal clear and good enough...More

Not only do you see wind surf yachts, launch pad boats, but skiing and half naked "pole sitting beauty". The Swiss does take summer vacation at the lake with a more than serious note. Elderly social dancers were there too.
