Hello, Can someone please tell if I need reservations for the boat from Fluellen to Lucerne? I’ll be using the Swiss Travel Pass, so if no reservations are needed, I just show it at the dock? As I understand, this is free with use of the STP. The timetable shows boats leave every hour; want to confirm that this is so even on a Saturday.

Thank you

No reservations required. Just show up. If you want access to upper deck you will need a Class upgrade if you have 2nd Class Swiss Travel Pass. Buy at any station or onboard boat.

Check out this timetable eadmin/lakelucerne/con tent/Dokumente_Downloa ds_PDF/01_Fahrplan-Preise/01_Fahrplan/Sai sonaler_Fahrplan/2019/ Fahrplan_Sommer_2019.p df. It changes from 9 September so watch out for that at timetable-fares/timetable/.

Make sure you get a traditional paddle steamer as denoted by icon at top of each timetable column. Much nicer than modern boats. atlakelucerne
