The motor vessel Bürgenstock sails for Lucerne on a beautiful summer day.

Motor vessel Bürgenstock

Shuttle ferry with sleek modern design

Our stylish new catamaran entered public service in May 2018. It provides an hourly shuttle service between Lucerne and Kehrsiten, from where there is an onward connection to the Bürgenstock Resort by funicular railway. 

Our newest vessel provides a fast and frequent shuttle service 365 days a year. This is by far the most attractive way to reach the magnificent Bürgenstock Resort by combination of boat and funicular. Glide over the lake and then rise above it to reach new heights.
