Whether you’re short on time or simply wish to view the snowy Swiss Alps from the water, this 60-minute yacht cruise on Lake Lucerne is your ticket. Relax on the main or upper deck of the spacious 161-foot (49-meter) vessel while you listen to commentary about the majestic sights via your audio headset. With an expert captain at the helm, you’ll motor past forested hillsides and verdant meadows nestled against looming mountain peaks. Purchase drinks and snacks from the onboard bar, and select from multiple departure times.
  • 1-hour Lake Lucerne sightseeing cruise
  • Admire views of the lake, the town and the Swiss Alps from the comfort of a 161-foot yacht
  • Learn about local sights from your audio commentary, available in multiple languages
  • Enjoy snacks and drinks from the onboard bar (own expense)
  • Choose a morning, afternoon or evening departure
Board your elegant 161-foot motor yacht at Pier 7, located near Hotel Schweizerhof Lucerne. You’ll spend 1 hour on a panoramic sightseeing cruise around Lake Lucerne, departing in the morning, afternoon or evening. 

While your captain steers along what is arguably Switzerland’s most stunning lake, sit back and relax on the main deck, where you can purchase drinks and snacks from the onboard bar. Take in the fresh breeze and mist on the lake-level terrace at the rear of the boat, or settle into the custom-designed furniture on the yacht’s upper deck, which features a sliding roof for optimal viewing. 

Referred to as the heart of Switzerland, the 44-square-mile (114-sq-km) lake is bordered on all sides by mountain scenery that will take your breath away. Listen to your audio guide to learn about historical monuments, places of interest and the four surrounding cantons: Lucerne, Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden, marked by fertile valleys, forested slopes and steep Alpine peaks. When your cruise concludes, you’ll arrive back at Pier 7.

This was a wonderful way to experience the lake, the views and the relaxation of Lucerne. The boat can get very crowded so make sure to show up a little early to get in the line for the better viewing spots.

Beautiful experience! The boat was comfortable, departed and returned promptly. The recorded information was excellent. And actually explained quite a lot. The staff was courteous and professional. You cant go wrong with this tour!

Very pleasant afternoon / early evening cruise on the lake.

It was a perfect way to see and hear about some of the lake's history. There was not. Bad view on the boat. And as it was December we spent most of our ride inside. An hour was just right and the location was perfect to continue our shopping and walking in the town. Good value for the money. Thanks again !

This was an excellent hour's cruise in a splendid and stylish boat. Snack bar on board was appreciated and of course the scenery was great.
Can't imagine why anyone would not wish to ake this trip.

We were supposed to take the 10:00 am excursion. While waiting for the boat, it started raining, My son and I waited a bit, but the rain got worse. We decided to go back to the hotel. I'm actually giving this 4-star rating to Lake Lucerne as the next day the sun was shining and the view we had of the lake and surrounding areas was magnificent. Sad to say, we were going home.

The boat trip itself is very good. Great commentary the whole way and plenty to see. The only problem is the directions given. We followed them precisely only to find out off a local that pier 7 is actually on the other side of the lake north side than what was given in the directions so we had a mad rush across the bridge to where the boat was just in the nick of time.

This was amazing. It allows you to see different things from around the lake that you wouldn't normally be able too. The boat was comfortable and easy moving. Very peaceful and great experience.

Lovely way to see the Lake and surrounding area.
