Lucerne in the sky with diamonds—this Swiss lake twinkles

As pretty as a chocolate box, Lake Lucerne is stacked with Swiss charm. And on the western shores of the lake, the small city of Lucerne is close to where William Tell allegedly shot the apple off his son's head. But there'll be none of that nonsense here. Get your Swiss adventure off on the right foot and book a Lake Lucerne vacation rental right on the waterfront. In the summer, take a boat out on the lake, or check out its famous museums, the Swiss Transport Museum, The Rosengart Collection, and Lucerne Art Museum. And of course, don't leave without trying the famous Swiss chocolate.

There's nothing placid about Lake Lucerne

In the summer months, life on Lake Lucerne is all about messing about on the water. Whether you rent a paddle boat or take an organized cruise, you'll catch the shimmering reflections of the mountains in its crystal clear waters. For those who prefer to keep their toes nice and dry, there are many attractions in Lucerne, from art galleries and museums to a host of high-end boutiques, if a little retail therapy is needed. As the sun sets over the lake, kick back with a glass of local Swiss wine in your cozy Lake Lucerne vacation rental.

Art attack—discover Lake Lucerne's contemporary art scene

There's so much on offer in Lake Lucerne, the question should be, what can't you do? Classical music lovers flock to Lucerne, thanks to 19th-century composer Richard Wagner, whose house is now a museum. If you prefer contemporary art to concertos, then check out The Rosengart Collection for works by Picasso, Cezanne, and Klee. Bit too modern? Then the Lucerne Art Museum houses the Old Masters. Keep the kids interested by visiting the most popular museum in Switzerland, the brilliant Swiss Transport Museum, which has planes, trains, and automobiles, which can be reached, appropriately, by boat.

It's all about summer lovin' in Lake Lucerne

Lake Lucerne is a year-round destination, albeit one that requires sensible packing. For the best weather, come in summer when temperatures reach the high 70s. Peak season is between June and September, but come fall, you'll need to pack a coat as temps drop, but that does mean there's a wider choice of Lake Lucerne vacation rentals. If it's a Christmas card experience you're after, then winter in the best time to come. There are several ski resorts within easy reach of Lucerne, all which see plenty of the white stuff between December and April.

Swan around Lake Lucerne—a dream for hikers

The fourth largest lake in Switzerland, Lake Lucerne is in the center of the country, around an hour's drive from Zurich. Famous for its dizzying mountain peaks, Switzerland draws hikers and rock climbers from all over the world. From your Lake Lucerne vacation rental, the rugged mountain trails are mere moments away. One of the lake's more popular trails is the Swiss Path, which runs for 22 miles around the southern shores of Lake Lucerne. If you're lucky you may spot red deer, mountain hare, or even a golden eagle.
