We are planning to go to Mt Rigi next week and one of our routes is via a boat ride from Verkehrshaus-Lido to Vitznau. From the timetable, there's a direct boat ride at 10:22 am going to Vitznau but the direction is Flüelen (See). When I click the little ship icon labeled "BAT", there's a lot of stations starting from Verkehrshaus-Lido and ending at Flüelen (See).

My question is, do we get off at Vitznau station or is it not allowed?

There's another departure at 11:22 am, with the correct direction going to Vitznau but the time is a bit late for us.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi annpz,

Sure, you can get off the boat at any stop you like. This particular boat continues to Flüelen but that's not relevant for your trip.

Have fun, it's a lovely trip!

Thanks Arno!

That's good to hear! I thought we would have to wait for the 11:22 ride so we would get the correct boat, but good thing we don't have to.

Hi AnnPZ-

Here is a complete set of boat schedules for Lake Lucerne. Note that there are several different routes...with different [patterns of boat landings.

Not all in English, but they are pretty clear. Make sure you scroll down to the correct seasonal time table. There is also more information all the way at the bottom of the page timetable-fares/timetable/
