The majestic paddle steamer “Stadt Luzern” is the proud flagship of the Lake Lucerne navigation company. Originally built in 1928 as the last steamboat for a Swiss lake, the stately ship can look back on a rich history and has hosted numerous illustrious guests during the past 90 years.
The remarkable story of the paddle steamer closely reflects 20th century history and as the ship approaches its centenary anniversary later this decade, it has once again been rejuvenated and stylishly renovated. Even during the pandemic, the restoration process has continued at the Lucerne shipyard and the flagship will be ready for its planned relaunch in spring 2021. On May 1st there will be a big welcoming parade. From May 2nd you can rent the queen of Lake Lucerne exclusively again for your event.
