Lake Hallwil

Enjoy a cruise on the idyllic Lake Hallwil, with coffee and cake or a glass of fine wine. Our offer includes extra cruises for every budget, scheduled cruises, special cruises, and all kinds of theme-based cruises.

The idyllic hilly countryside around the lake, the medieval castle of Hallwyl with its heritage exhibitions, and the romantic boat trips round the lake make Lake Hallwil and the nearby Seetal valley a small but popular tourist area.

Säntis – a much welcomed sight

Just like a unpenetrable fortress the Alpsteinmassiv juts out high above the undulating hills of the Appenzell: its highest point is 2502-meter-high Mount Säntis. The ride in the gondola is breath-taking: take in Lake Constance, the Vorarlberg, the Graubünden, Glarus and Bernese Alps. On a clear day one can even see the Vosges Mountains and the Black Forest.

Meteorologists knew why they established a weather station on this mountain already in 1882. The Säntis is seen from near and far…. just like the panoramic views as seen from the summit.

Stanserhorn – the friendliest mountain

The 1,898 meter high Stanserhorn offers a view of ten lakes, 100 kilometers of the Alpine mountain range and three countries. Even the arrival by nostalgic cable car has its charms. The most convenient spots to enjoy the panorama are in the revolving restaurant or on the viewing platform.

Since 1893 open wooden carriages slowly make their way in leisurely manner from Stans direction Stanserhorn – terminating at the mid station after which you board the CabriO and a new generation in transport.

Lake Zurich

The Lake Zurich shipping company offers a comprehensive selection of short and long cruises. In summer the two vintage paddle-steamers also operate alongside the 15 motor-powered cruise ships. And as the shipping company is part of Zurich’s integrated transport network, passengers are able to benefit from extremely attractive tariffs. A cruise on Lake Zurich is relaxation in its purest form, and an experience for all the senses.

The bent, almost banana-shaped Lake Zurich is framed on the southern side by the Albis and Zimmerberg hills and on the north by the Pfannenstiel chain of hills. The lake is bordered by the cantons of Zurich, St.Gallen and Schwyz. At the western end lies Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city.
