MS Mythen

Small ship, big history! MS Mythen was the very first motor vessel that was entirely built on site and "in house" at the shipyard in Lucerne. During the time of its construction in 1931, it was quite a technical trailblazer, as its superstructures were built of lightweight aluminum, rather than heavier steel.

This cozy ship provides an intimate setting for family get-togethers or other small group events. Combine the cruise with an aperitif featuring a selection of refreshing drinks and light finger food.
