Here some boat trip suggestions for a family day trip on Lake Lucerne. The city is a perfect base in Switzerland with kids; here, you can board to go to Mount Rigi, make the Golden Round trip to Mount Pilatus, and easily travel to Interlaken, Zurich, and other Cantons in Central Switzerland.

Lucerne- Verkershaus Lido

During summer we love to make a short family trip from Lucerne Pier 2 to Verkershaus – Lido (Museum of Transport), the trip costs about CHF 8,-per adult and is the most beautiful way to get on Public Pool Lido.


You will feel enchanted by Weggis, I promise! 🙂 Up to Lucerne Riviera!! Here you can take the Cable Car to go up to Mount Rigi.

Golden Roundtrip to Mount Pilatus

Saphir Yacht Panoramic Trip

The one-hour tour in Lake Lucerne was fascinating!! Do you know how swiss people used to communicate in the Alps? Or where are the healing waters of the ‘Kaltbad’ mineral springs around Lake Lucerne? If not yet, you have to make this trip =) Daily departures, price CHF 27.00, children 13.50. With Swiss Travel Pass or Half Fare CHF 16.50 per adult. From May to September, another Tipp is the Sunset Boat Tour, departs around 7:00 pm on the Pier, and costs CHF 28 per adult.

Urnerlake und Tell’s Chapel

This route from Lucerne to Beckenried is also one of the most beautiful from the “Grand Tour of Switzerland.” One part of the trip is made by Ferry “Tell Sprung.” Part of Switzerland’s history, this Chapel was build in 1880.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But just imagine if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the best in its field. Awesome blog!
