On a cloudy or rainy day, Lake Lucerne becomes even more mythical and fairytale-like. Enjoy the cozy comfort and warm shelter of our attractive ships as you explore the Alpine landscape and beautiful shoreline. We recommend taking the boat from Lucerne to Weggis and then walking along the lake on the comfortable pedestrian path to Hertenstein. From there you can return by boat to Lucerne. During the scenic walk from Weggis to Hertenstein, there are several cafes and restaurants along the way. Alternately, you could take the aerial cableway from Weggis to Rigi Kaltbad or visit the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne.
What better way to start Sunday than with a sumptuous brunch cruise on Lake Lucerne? Step aboard, enjoy the fantastic views and savor the flavors of our region. Make the most of the hearty brunch buffet, which is well stocked with Swiss cheese and meat specialties, warm dishes, fresh breads and some sweet treats. The scenic, 2.5 hour cruise from Lucerne makes for a perfect family excursion, no matter if it is sunny or rainy. Good food for a good mood!
Take the boat from our central Lucerne pier near the railway station across the bay to the Swiss Museum of Transport. Discover the huge indoor and outdoor collections there, which include historic and modern aircraft, boats, trains and cars. Lots of interactive play features provide opportunities for hands-on engagement. The museum also includes an IMAX theater, the Media World exhibit and the art museum dedicated to the Swiss painter and sculptor Hans Erni. There’s something for everyone at Switzerland’s largest and most popular museum!
Enjoy genuine wellness for a day and take a swim atop Mount Rigi! Few other facilities offer such incredible views as the pools and baths at Rigi Kaltbad. Conveniently reached by rack railway from Vitznau or by aerial cableway from Weggis, Rigi Kaltbad is perched high above Lake Lucerne and provides a fantastic panorama. Even on a rainy day, you will find the setting to be extraordinary. For an exciting itinerary, with multiple attractions in short sequence, we recommend the scenic cruise from Lucerne to Vitznau, then the rack railway ride to Rigi Kaltbad, before relaxing and reviving at the baths. Complete the round trip in the late afternoon for the return by mountain railway and boat to Lucerne.
Our modern ships are warmly heated and provide lots of attractive indoor seating as well as spacious outdoor decks for brief moments to enjoy some fresh air or take pictures of the stunning landscape.
