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.
What to Expect
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.

Relaxing and Beautiful

You can find the cruise at Pier 7 across from the Hotel Schweizerhof. It sets sail every 75 minutes. There was an audio guide in a number of languages, and the yacht was nice with seats under cover. (We were annoyed at ourselves that we...More

An excellent lake-side cruise with breathtaking views and no time to sit-down off taking photos/filming.

Just sit down and relax for breathtaking views and funny local stories and legends to narrate "ancient" history of local attractions. Serene and peaceful.
