Central Switzerland is the quintessential place to experience it all: snow-capped peaks, sun-drenched villages, traditional events, and one stunning Lake Lucerne.
The Lake Lucerne Navigation Company with its fleet of steamboats, ferries, and even a high-tech yacht also offers specialty cruises. We can wholeheartedly recommend their Wine and Dine Cruise on the historic steam paddler Stadt Luzern.
What's on the menu of the Wine and Dine Cruise?
After boarding the steamboat at pier 6 in Lucerne, the experience starts with an apéro at 6:30 PM. Executive Chef Florian Gilges has created some appetizers, especially for this cruise. Think Sbrinz mousse or apricot mustard... It will be up to you whether to toast with a glass of bubbly or the boat company’s own brew!
The products on the night's menu are regional, be it the lamb from Göscheneralp or the locally roasted coffee from Rast Kaffee. This local connection is also the neat thing about this culinary cruise.
As you take a seat and indulge in the chef’s creations, the crew will inform you about special sights and suppliers. This creates a sensory connection between the dishes and their origin.
Take the town of Meggen with its vineyards: it cultivates the organic Solaris AOC Luzern vintage you might be sipping at the very moment you pass by. Or the family-run Bühlhof farm in the village of Greppen which supplies the turkey meat.
The Wine and Dine Cruise on Lake Lucerne not only offers fine dining with wine pairings but also scenic views of central Switzerland. And with a bit of luck, you might just experience the summer's most striking sunset...
On June 26, the sunset takes place at 9:24 PM - roughly the time this cruise is headed from Vitznau back towards Lucerne. Arrival at the pier in Lucerne is scheduled for 10 PM.
The all-inclusive price of 179 francs per person covers the table reservation, roundtrip fare, apéro, four-course dinner with wine pairing, as well as non-alcoholic beverages such as coffee or water.
