Lake Lucerne Map and Map of Lake Lucerne Depth Size History Information Page

Lake Lucerne

This lake twists and turns its way from the city of Lucerne, in and through the massive Swiss Alps.

Nearly 114 sq km (44 sq mi) in size, Lake Lucerne has an elevation of 434 meters (1,424 ft), and a maximum depth of 214 meters (702 ft).

Similar to Italy's Lake District, it's possible to motor around the lake by road, however, the highway is snake-like and very slow, as there are many tunnels cut through the mountains.

Lake Lucerne is a popular year-round tourist destination, both for locals and international travelers, and there are many hotels and resorts to choose from along its shores.
