I am mulling the idea of a Tell Pass and noticied on the SBB site there is a table listing all cableways, busses, etc and one boat, Aegerisee Schifffahrt. On this company's website it lists different landing sites than what you get if you do a search on SBB for say Luzern to Vitznau. Is this a separate company that you can't use the SBB timetables for? The table I'm referring to is here: www.tellpass.ch/__/fro ntend/handler/document /42/157/Streckennetzpa rtner_Network%202018.p df

Hi Debra,

The Aegerisee Schifffahrt is a boat/boat company that operates on the Aegerisee (Aegeri Lake).

The word "See" is German for lake.

Hence the differences on landing sites from SBB for Lake Luzern. :)
PS in German, Lake Luzern is "Vierwaldstättersee" (Four Forested Settlements Lake.... roughly)

Thanks, I guess I can assume all the boats there would be covered; When clicking the link on this website it takes you to a page with different prices, it is the winter price even though the link is for summer. Too bad, I see it would be more expensive to add a Tell pass rather than getting another Swiss travel pass.

Any boat trip you find through the SBB timetablewould be covered. Essentially all of them as far as I'm aware. There may be special event cruises that aren't not covered (but may be discounted with the STP). I'm thinking of Jazz cruises, dinner cruises, brunch cruises etc.

Which link for prices on our site do you mean? We have a link under "more information on our Lake Lucerne Boat page here that links to fares for 2018. The prices are noted as valid from Dec. 17 but it is not just winter - it is for 2018.

Hope that helps!

The link from the Tell Pass prices; when you click the summer prices, the page it takes you to on the sbb site are the winter ones not the summer ones.

Hi Debra,

Indeed it does, I assume because most people buying now still do so for winter. But if you click the Order Now button and pick your travel date, you'll get the correct prices and can also order if you want to. Please see https://www.swissrailw ays.com/en/products/re gionalcentralswisspass.
