Lake Lucerne for nature lovers
Follow the footsteps of Goethe and Mark Twain on Lake Lucerne
Thanks to the city's charming location, holidays in Lucerne on Lake Lucerne have long been very popular. Poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, for example, stayed here, and Mark Twain's story about climbing the Rigi also made this Swiss region famous in the USA. Even Queen Victoria of England travelled to this area, more precisely to Weggis, where she stayed at the Hotel Beau Rivage, which today belongs to Romantik Hotels & Restaurants. This section of the lakeshore is called the Riviera of Central Switzerland because of its sheltered location and mild climate. Figs, yucca palms, orchids and cypresses thrive there right next to the hotel. Lucerne - Lake Lucerne is also popular with water sports enthusiasts thanks to water temperatures of up to 22 degrees in summer.
