Weggis

The picturesque villages of Weggis and Vitznau are located right on the shores of Lake Lucerne, only 15 minutes apart by lake steamer and approx. 40 minutes by boat from the city of Lucerne. This is a beautiful region, steeped in history and romance - the legend of ‘William Tell’ and other colourful stories unfold in this corner of the world. Both villages have lovely flower-lined lakeside promenades with cafés and restaurants in which to enjoy beautiful evening sunsets. Take a paddle steamer to the lakeside destination of your choice, or just enjoy cruising and lunching on board.
