Lake Lucerne

Lake Lucerne (German: Vierwaldstättersee, literally Four Forested-Cantons Lake) is a lake in Central Switzerland. Many of its shores rise sharply in mountains up to 1500 m above the lake, resulting in many picturesque views, including Mount Rigi and Mount Pilatus. In the picture it is possible to see Lake Lucerne and, in the middle, Mount Pilatus.
