Shipping and Corona virus

Lake Lucerne

Below you will find information from the Lake Lucerne Navigation Company (SGV) AG about corona virus and shipping on Lake Lucerne.

Information: Update from 14.04.21, 16:45

Despite the opening of the outdoor terraces in the gastronomy, the boats of the SGV will continue to operate WITHOUT a gastronomic offer until the complete opening of the gastronomy businesses. The outside decks of the boats will continue to be accessible to all passengers and will therefore not be subject to compulsory consumption, which would have been necessary in the case of this gradual opening.  Moreover, with the existing protection concepts (e.g. distance rules), the existing infrastructure on the ships (including fixed bolted seating and tables) and the ability to plan due to weather influences, it is not possible to run the gastronomy on the outside decks profitably.  However, the SGV welcomes the opening of the outdoor terraces in the gastronomy. It is a small step towards normalisation. The gastro area is accessible to all.

Since 19 October 2020, an extended mask obligation has been in force in Switzerland. The mask obligation no longer applies only on the ships but already starts at the access points to public transport, such as the ship stations and waiting houses of the SGV. 

You can find the current timetable here.

The Lake Lucerne Navigation Company (SGV) AG is subject to the protective measures of public transport (German). We urge passengers to adhere to these rules. The safety of our guests and employees has the highest priority. More detailed information on protection and hygiene can be found on the website of the Federal Office of Public Health FOPH .

If you have any questions, you can contact us at any time at infolakelucerne.ch or by phone at +41 41 367 67 67.

Any changes will be communicated continuously on the website www.lakelucerne.ch.

We wish you good health and thank you for your understanding.

Masks are mandatory

Please note that according to Swiss government regulations, you are required to wear a face mask on the entire ship! This includes the outdoor spaces and open decks. 

In order to eat or drink your packed refreshments, you may temporarily remove your mask. 

According to the latest government instruction dating from late March 2021, it is specifically not permitted to use tables to spread out food or create picnic-like situations.
