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 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.

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.

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.

The cruise was an additional way to view beautiful Lucerne. Very well done.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

Since we had a short amount of time to spend in Lucerne and the lake is key to any visit here, we chose this beautiful tourist type of modern yacht. It is spacious and affords adequate comfort with great viewing opportunities. This short but we felt sufficient tour of a part of the lake and its many sites was just what we needed. The headset information served its purpose to be informative coupled with some music when not talking.

A memorable tour on a beautiful ship. Well worth the time. The audio tour provides interesting insight into the founding of Switzerland.
