What You Can Expect

Lake Lucerne Panoramic Sightseeing Cruise

Enjoy views of the mountain scenery during your Lake Lucerne sightseeing cruise

Head to Lake Lucerne’s Pier 7, near the Lucerne railway station, to board the spacious 161-foot (49-meter) motor yacht. On board, find a comfortable spot on the main deck or upper deck and get ready for your 1-hour cruise around Lake Lucerne!

Take in views of the breathtaking mountain scenery, marked by steep Alpine peaks, sloped forests and fertile meadows and valleys beyond. This uniquely shaped, 44-square-mile (114-sq-km) lake is often referred to as the heart of Switzerland, and is surrounded by four glorious cantons: Lucerne, Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden.

The yacht's upper deck features custom-designed furniture and a sliding roof that can be opened and closed according to the weather, letting you enjoy the views in comfort. On the main deck, purchase drinks and snacks from the onboard bar, and take in the fresh breeze and mist on the lake-level terrace at the rear of the boat.

Along the way, use your audio guide to learn about the landscapes, historical monuments and places of interest around Lake Lucerne. Arrive back at Pier 7 at the end of the cruise.

Lake Lucerne is very beautiful and picturesque. This is a great way to have a great view. Best on a fine weather day! No problem with online booking.

Perfect city perfect lake - We had a wonderfully calm, sunny and warm day for this trip on the lake. The Audio guides were a great help in learning more about the lake, Lucerne, and the area in general.
To help seal the deal on perfection there was a brass band playing as well to finish off the ambiance of the whole trip. Would go again!

Lovely trip around the upper part of the lake.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

This cruise was fine, but, the day was overcast and cool and breezy, so we weren't able to enjoy it as much as we would have liked.

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2015

Nothing can detract from the beautiful scenery of Lake Lucerne, but what can detract from the commentary of the cruise is what appeared to be the unabashed advertising that went on for the first 3-4 minutes. I expected to hear a history and noteworthy info regarding the area and I was somewhat disappointed.

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2015

Basic cruise around the lake, no frills....beautiful scenery though.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this May 2015

The boat picked up a group from across the lake prior to picking up the main group. We were the first ones in line and by the time we boarded, all the outside seating on the boat was occupied. It was not very well organized and I do NOT recommend this particular boat tour.
