Lake Lucerne with its wonderfully located city Lucerne not only represents breathtaking landscapes, but also the cradle of Switzerland. It was here at the Rütli that the three original cantons Uri, Unterwalden und Schwyz made their oath to create the “Eidgenossenschaft”.
Being protected by mountains the climate of the lake resembles the mild climate of the Ticino. On the lakes southern shores you will find many Mediterranean plants and trees.
Lucerne, the largest city on the lake is not only a great vantage point to discover the surroundings but also offers an interesting cultural programme. There is no lack of Lucerne hotels either. You will find something for every taste.
In Beckenried, the most beautiful village on the southern shores of lake Lucerne, you can indulge oi the local culinary delicacies or just relax on a terrace taking in the beautiful views.
