Lake cruises

The best place for fresh air and fantastic views is on board a boat

If you like being on the water, the Region of Bern is the place to be. Their different cruises make the lakes of the region a joy to visit.
At Lake Thun there is plenty to discover on water and on shore. Romantics can enjoy the gentle rocking motion of the waves during a sunset tour. For an environmentally friendly experience, climb aboard the solar boat shuttle. The solar powered catamaran runs between the town centre of Thun and the parks along Lake Thun throughout the summer season.

Once back on dry land, five castles and their elaborate parks offer a glimpse into the lives of past aristocrats. Adventurers can go exploring in the St. Beatus caves.

Galley or award-winning cuisine

Lake Brienz does not only enthral visitors with its emerald green colour, but it is also a regular location for culinary highlights. Whether it is fondue or fresh fish, the menus on the different cruises whet the appetite for more. If you sometimes like to indulge in nostalgia you will also be delighted: A visit to the Grand Hotel Giessbach as well as a trip on the «Lötschberg» paddle steamer bring back the good old times.

To the rhythm of the waves

And the beat goes on: On Lake Biel, the Jazzboat and a dance cruise provide musical entertainment while picturesque villages and landscapes glide past. A favourite destination is St. Peter’s Island. Here, visitors can journey into the past on a historic tour. Create special memories on board while enjoying the fireworks and gourmet cruises that offer a feast for the senses.
