What You Can Expect

Lake Lucerne Panoramic Sightseeing Cruise

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

Board your elegant 161-foot motor yacht at Pier 7, located near Lucerne railway station. 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.

It was a beautiful sunny day. Lake Lucerne is beautiful,with a back drop of the incredible alps and hidden coves. We were thrilled to see Santa's cottage and the beautiful estates around the lake.

Peace and serenity on this cruise. There are other cruises which offer entertainment from Indian movies, but we did not opt for that. This was a lovely cruise and took us around the lake, giving us a picture post card view of Lucerne, the mountains and the entire areas surrounding Lucerne. Just Heaven.

Although it was very cold, the views were wonderful. There were blankets provided and you could obtain audio so you could hear the history of the area. Loved it.

Great cruise of the lake and surrounding area for the price. We were able to get on an earlier scheduled cruise than what we booked. This was a plus to fit our full schedule of vacation events.

I had a bit of trouble finding Pier 7...thought it was by Central Station and not on other side of the Lake.
Cruise left on time, boat was clean and comfortable. Weather cooperated that day, so views were stunning. One hour was enough. Boat made a circle around part of the lake. The cruise was pleasant, relaxing, and good value for the cost. I recommend it.

Our family had a wonderful time on this lovely boat. We stayed at the Hotel Grand National so it was only steps away from our hotel. The cruise itself was beautiful and having some wine as we took in the amazing surroundings was truly first class. We would recommend this wonderful trip to everyone! It was an hour long and that seemed just perfect! We love Luzern!

Weather was cloudy and windy but the views of the mountains were not obscured. Nice quiet ride on the yacht. Took lots of photos. Beautiful place!
