Switzerland is not only a country of mountains but also of lakes. Lakes means that one should have boats on them, preferably steamers. This is the case on on 8 Swiss lakes which has 16 lake steamers. Each one is a historic boat, which was restored for many million Swiss francs. Lake Luzern has the most of these behemoths (5 boats) which fascinate children as much as adults. Lake Geneva has 4 of these proud examples of the 19th century. Other wonderful examples are the Lötschberg on Lake Brienz, and the Blümlisalp on Lake Thun. A smaller specimen, the Greif, sails on Lake Zurich. Steam Ahoy!
