romantic excursion on Lake Lucerne

Surrounded by a magnificent mountain backdrop, Lake Lucerne is always worth a trip. Last summer, on a splendid summer evening, we went on a candlelight trip on the oldest paddle steamer in Switzerland and experienced a wonderfully romantic and nostalgic evening. Three hours on Lake Lucerne that really give you that holiday feeling.

Boat tours

In cooperation with the Association of Swiss Shipping Companies, I am presenting you with a selection of excursion ideas and culinary tours from Lake Constance to Lake Zurich that we have made. At the beginning of this series, I brought two kinds of tips for boat trips on Lake Lugano and Lake Maggiore from a trip to Ticino.

Holiday mood on Lake Lucerne

The thermometer shows almost 28 ° Celsius, the sun shines from the steel-blue sky. Here and there a few beautiful weather clouds form – wonderful picture-perfect summer weather. This wonderful weather lured us out of the house a little earlier than necessary and we arrive at Lucerne train station a good hour before the candlelight steamer leaves. We use the remaining time for a leisurely stroll along the lake basin up to the level of the Hotel Palace and via the Chapel Bridge (a “must” for me on a detour to Lucerne) back to the landing stage. On the way we watch the “bustle” in the lake. Pedalos and the fleet of the shipping company of Lake Lucerne provide an entertaining exhibition.
