Large boat with dining room was wondeful. Smooth ride around very scenic lake with great views of snow capped mountains. The menu was great on the boat! Had the best roast beef ever, and the berry and gelati dessert was fabulous. Highly recommend this tour boat. Free with Swiss travel pass.

Walking around the lake is simply uplifting! The water and bird life, the well kept grass areas, the sculptures on route, the mountains, boats.....the list goes on. What a fantastic place, somewhere to absorb the shear beauty and magnificence of everything it has to offer.

My wife and I took an hour boat ride across Lake Lucerne to go to the top of Mount Pilatus. It was a beautiful day and the lake was like glass. The beautiful valleys and the lake surrounded by the Swiss Alps is a breathtakingly beautiful setting. Every view in any direction was a postcard worthy picture. If you are... More

The boat rides are included with Swiss rail passes and Tell Passes and lots of other passes. Definitely take a ride! You can get off at any number of places and catch a boat back, or just stay on the boat the whole time. The third part of the lake is the most spectacular and highly recommended. You can train...
