i will be visiting Interlaken, Lucern and Zurich for two days each. Is it worthwhile to do a cruise in each city? Which cruise is recommended for interlaken - on Lake Thun or Brienz? Is there a cruise which will take me to Bern (where I could do some sightseeing for 3-4 hours) and then get back to Interlaken?

I understand that on Swiss Travel Pass these cruises are free and on Half Fare Pass these are at 50%. Can someone help me with the regular price for these cruises? And also the timings for them. Thanks,

Hi meghaswiss,

All details plus links to timetables and fares can be found on our boat trip pages: tivities/scenictrips/b oat.

There is no boat all the way from Interlaken to Bern. You can take the boat to Thun, then the train to Bern.

Hi Meghaswiss-

Of the cruises that you mention, I personally prefer Lake Lucerne for its size and variety of scenery.
