Lake Lucern cruise with Swiss Pass questions

Hello,

Will do the trip in Oct with Swiss Pass. Appreciate if you kindly let me know the followings;

1) Could we use our ticket to board the boat/cog wheel/cabel care or do we need to show the pass for the tickets?

2) There is special cruise like the Brunch or Sunset cruise, would it be covered by Swiss Pass?

If yes, is the advanced booking neccessary?

Thank you very much indeed.

Item 1 – not sure what trip you mean but if using a normal ferry just jump on and your Swiss pass is your ticket.

Item 2 – Special cruises can be different check details here

If you're talking about the boat to Vitznau, the cogwheel up to Rigi Kulm, the Swiss Pass covers everything. Which is well worth it, a round trip via boat and the cogwheel, cost about CHF120.

You need simply to show your pass when they come around and your pass is your ticket....no need to get a separate ticket. Simply board and show pass. Second class pass is good on lower deck, first pass any deck. If you prefer upper deck and have a second class pass you do need to purchase an upgraded ticket. You can use the pass on any of the boats without reservation, food and beverage is extra. The Rigi Kulm round trip is well worth doing and a great value. Again, simply show your pass to the person who asks for the "tickets". Also you can hop on and off at any of the stops and explore a bit, then hop on another ship later. Have a great trip!

The specific culinary cruises may have different requirements.....we have never done one of these.....but you would get a discount with the pass. Have a great time.
