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.
The Steamboat Experience on Lake Lucerne
The various offers around Lake Lucerne are just as varied as those aboard the ships. A total of five steamboats and fifteen motorboats - from nostalgic to ultra-modern, including one with an open roof - cover numerous nautical kilometers and inspire all passengers. With a first-class ticket, you can let yourself be pampered in the upstairs lounge on the upper floor. Technology aficionados can enjoy direct insight into the steamship machinery, with a direct view into the engine room. Wherever one sits, the journey is a special experience.
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.
