Things to do

Go to Pilatus Mountain. Some people walk up the entire mountain, but I would recommend taking the gondola ride. Even on the ride, it takes almost 45 minutes, so imagine how long it would take to hike. The views from the top are totally worth it.

Visit Brunnen.  This is a very cute little town along the lake. The views of the water is amazing.

If it is warm enough you can also jump in for a swim, but be careful it is very rocky until you get further out into the lake.

Explore Lucerne. This small town with lots of cute streets to explore.  It is a perfect way to spend half a day. There are only a few things to see in the town.  The best part was to take a cruise along the lake.
