Most boats depart from Lucerne. Lucerne can be reached by train or by car.
How to get to the boat dock
There are many towns to board the boats. The main boat dock is in Lucerne, just across the rail station. You can get there by car, but it's much easier to get there by train.
Some other towns where you can board the boats are Beckenried, Brunnen, Flüelen, Meggen, Vitznau and Weggis. The map does not show all the stops, as they differ per trip. If you have time, a longer boat trip is recommended to fully enjoy the beauty of the lake and the surrounding Alps.
