Lake Lucerne in Switzerland is simply beautiful.

It combines clear blue waters and panoramic views of the tree-lined mountains. With a traffic-free centre, the city of Lucerne has plenty of shops, bars and restaurants and a fantastic atmosphere.

Lucerne's lakeside is a great summer playground, with loads of lidos and places to relax in the sunshine. You can spend a day cruising around the lake on the paddle steamer or hire a motorboat and explore the little villages along the lakeshore.

The meeting point of four Swiss cantons, Lucerne is nestled on the western shore of the lake which bears its name. Its beautiful clear blue waters sit at the foot of the tree-lined mountains of Central Switzerland including both Mount Rigi and Mount Pilatus.

Lake Lucerne is the birth place of Switzerland and the tales of legerdary bowman and folk-hero William Tell. Take a stroll along the lakeside promenade or boot-up and try walking through beautiful mountain meadows - discover fascinating history alongside a modern vibrant culture.

Crystal Summer offers holidays that are set amongst some of Europe's most stunning locations -  with awe-inspiring mountains, beautiful beaches and peaceful lakes as a back-drop to your fantastic summer holiday.
