Discover Vitznau and Environs with Steamboat Cruises

The ideal prelude to the start of your holiday is a steamboat trip from Lucerne to Vitznau on beautiful Lake Lucerne. Boat trips are a popular way to get around and open up a variety of excursion destinations around Lake Lucerne or simply the lake itself.

Summertime Steamboat Trips

When the temperatures rise and the signs point to summer, the ships start their seasonal timetable on Lake Lucerne. Whether making the Rigi round trip, headed to the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne, or indulging in a shopping spree in Lucerne, passengers can take steam and motor boats to desired destination at regular intervals.

Lake Cruises

It is no mystery why boat trips are so popular. The variety of options include the following tours which can be boarded directly in Vitznau:

- The small lake tour on the motor ship on the route from Lucerne to Beckenried spoils passengers with views of the dreamy landscape.

- The big lake tour by steamboat or motorboat leads from Lucerne to the village of Flüelen. Here the entire Lake Lucerne region and the surrounding mountains and lakes can be explored in their full glory.

Lunchtime and evenings are also popular for boat trips. Just hop on board and gather energy for the second half of the day or after an exciting day with a gentle breeze and relaxing waves.
