Set in stunning Swiss mountain scenery, Lake Lucerne is also known as the Lake of the Four Forested Cantons, overlooked by the areas of Lucerne, Uri, Underwalden and Schwyz. The lake is the fourth largest in Switzerland at 44 square miles and its unique shape nestled between the mountains offers the opportunity to take in spectacular views of the area.
Those interested in visiting Lucerne to explore Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountains should check in to the Radisson Blu Hotel Lucerne for attractive accommodation in an enviable location, overlooking the shores of the Lake.
Visit Lucerne Lake – the heart of Switzerland
As a gateway to central Switzerland, boat trips on Lake Lucerne are popular with visitors looking to travel elsewhere in North-central Switzerland, as well as those simply aiming to experience the spectacular scenery from the water. Guests can sail on the lake, charter yachts or cruise on board a restored paddleboat steamer, offering stops at the villages that hug the shoreline.
Sometimes called the heart of Switzerland, the lake holds an important place in Swiss history, as the Rütli – a meadow above the lake - was the setting for the oath taken in 1921 which laid the foundation of the Swiss Federation.
Stay on the shores of Lake Lucerne
Visitors to Lake Lucerne can stay in comfortable surroundings right on the shore of the Lucerne Lake at the Radisson Blu Hotel Lucerne. Well placed beside the lake, the hotel offers guests the perfect Lucerne accommodation from which to explore the region's beautiful scenery.
