The Alps surrounding the lake Vierwaldstättersee.
It is actually a lake with many names: Vierwaldstättersee is the German name - in Italian Lago dei Quattro Cantoni, in French Lac des Quatre-Cantons, in Romansh Lai dals Quatter Chantuns, and the official English name is Lake Lucerne. Lucerne (also known as Luzern) is situated by the lake, but still not a spot-on translation of any of the local names. But on the other hand, the Swiss names are not really spot on either since there are five (and not four) cantons bordering on the lake.
