"Lake Lucerne, I later discovered"

The vast expanse of Lake Lucerne is located in the heart of Switzerland. The number four is well linked to the lake - it is the country's fourth largest, it appears in four different valleys and it is also known as the 'Lake of the Four Forested Cantons'.Not just a typical lake then, Lake Lucerne stretches out into the Swiss mountains and borders the three original cantons of Uri, Schwyz, and Unterwalden, plus the canton of Lucerne.
