Lake Geneva = "The Most Magnificent and Breathtaking Lake of the World"?

The ultra-reliable and objective website smashinglists.com has declared the wonderful Lake Geneva (known as Lac Leman to locals outside of Geneva) to be the Number 1 in their list of "The Most Magnificent and Breathtaking Lakes of the World." See the full list here.

I agree Lake Geneva is a very fine lake, and I enjoy much of what it has to offer (stunning mountain views, great vineyards, wonderful towns and cities along the shore, nice beaches for summer BBQs and swims, ...), but I'm not sure it would even be my favorite in all of Switzerland - Lake Walen (Walensee) is hard to beat for a setting, and Lake Luzern (Vierwaldstattersee) is also very impressive. Plus, some of the high mountain lakes have their own special charms. Here's the Walensee:

Anyone care to make a case for other Swiss lakes (pictures always help )?
