The Lake Lucerne navigation company operates a fleet of 20 passenger ships on the lake, from the paddle steamer Uri launched in 1901 to the sleek high-tech cruiser Diamant which dates from 2017. You can catch a ship for the 10-minute hop across to the Transport Museum, or spend up to 5.5h on a roundtrip cruise to Flüelen and back. Boats leave regularly from the piers around the KKL or from the piers on Schweizerhofquai, even in winter. Snacks and drinks are available from the bar on almost all connections (except the very earliest), and on many the restaurant offers full meals.
Opening hours of the ticket office across from the railway station are roughly 08:30 - 17:00, sometimes closed at lunchtime.
Adult fares, one-way, second-class are between 6Sfr and 46Sfr, depending on distance. Daypass 72/36Sfr.
