On Lake Lucerne

A special sightseeing tour
Taking the boat is by far the most refreshing and relaxing way to see Lake Lucerne and experience this unique place in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Gently glide over the water, feel the fresh breeze and bask in the sun on the spacious decks of the stylish ships. From Lucerne, our different boat routes provide the most direct access to the different mountain railways, beautiful villages and fascinating places steeped in history. Combine a cruise with visits to Mount Rigi, Mount Pilatus or the luxurious Bürgenstock Resort. On all of our ferry links, drinks and light refreshments are available, while all of our paddle steamers and large motor vessels offer full catering services in ornate salons or comfortable modern lounges.
