Switzerland – Lake Lucerne. Beautiful and full of opportunities for everyone.

June 09, 2016


Well known for its fjord-like feel and its beautiful surroundings, Lake Lucerne has stunning mountains which allow groups to spend a great amount of time outdoors whilst the weather is mild.

A boat trip by either motor boat or historic paddle steamer in what is Europe’s largest inland navigation system is simply a must for your group.

The lake’s location is great too. There are many internationally famous day trip destinations worth a visit:

Titlis, with its Rotair gondola and the highest-altitude glacier in Central Switzerland

• The mountain railways of the region such as the one up on the Rigi – Queen of the Mountains

The Pilatus – with a panoramic view of 73 Alpine peaks and home of the steepest cogwheel railway in the world

The Stanserhornare, within reach from Lucerne by either boat or train by its unique CabriO cable car

The city of Lucerne is worth a trip all of its own. Take stroll down the Chapel Bridge – a symbol of Lucerne and the oldest covered footbridge in Europe – and enjoy the city’s unique festivals, which include a broad cultural and music programme for all.

And to top it off, a great hostel too. After an eventful day, the Lucerne Youth Hostel is an ideal and inexpensive option for overnight accommodation and board. As well as spacious communal areas, the 206-room hostel offers modern and functional rooms with two to six beds.
