Hi,

My mum and I finally arrived in Zurich. Tomorrow we are going to Lucerne. We are planning to take a short return boat ride from Lucerne and back to Lucerne. Please advise we should take the boat from Lucerne to which town? How long is the boat ride? Do we have to get down from the boat for the return trip to Lucerne? We both have the STP Flex.

Thank you.

Hi Jenn Chuah,

Good that you're in Zurich now, I hope you enjoy it! There are numerous boat trips to be made on Lake Lucerne. You can choose from many routes and durations. Short rides can be made to Kehrsiten-Bürgenstock, Weggis or Vitznau for example. I think you can stay seated at Kehrsiten-Bürgenstock as these boats have kind of a quick ferry function to and from Lucerne. You'd get off the boat in Weggis or Vitznau and wait for another boat back to Lucerne. You'll find a link to (pdf) timetables under 'Information on other websites' at www.myswissalps.com/boatlakelucerne/gettingthere.

If you use a free travel day on your Swiss Travel Pass Flex (https://www.myswissalps.com/swisstravelpassflex/howtouse) all boat rides will be free and you won't need any additional tickets.

Have fun!

the part of the lake between Brunnen and Flüelen is the most impressive; dont miss this.

Get a coffee and Zuger Kirschtorte on the boat. Brunnen is ok to stroll around.

On some boats 1st class upgrade is worth it du to better seating and view (mostly in summer on the steamers).

enjoy, I will wafe down from Mount Rigi; Mittlerschwanden
