On Lake Lucerne, Switzerland, visitors can take a round-trip journey from Lucerne (Luzern) to Flüelen aboard one of four steam-powered paddleboats, each with a restaurant.

Available only at the docks, a round-trip ticket of the full route costs CHF77 (near $80), second class, or CHF115, first class, and allows for hop-on, hop-off privileges (on both paddleboats and modern ferries) at any of the route’s 12 stops.

On the timetables posted at press time, valid until May 20, 2020, one paddleboat was running daily, leaving Luzern at 11:12 a.m. and returning at 4:47 p.m. On Sundays, a second paddleboat was running from 9:12 to 2:47. Timetables change seasonally. To download a PDF of the schedule, visit www.lakelucerne.ch/en/timetable-fares/prices-tickets.
