Lucerne’s Floating Restaurant dot

The crew of the Wilhelm Tell is proud to welcome you on board for a trip to yesteryear in the unique atmosphere of this nostalgic paddle steamer! Built in 1908, it has been lovingly restored to its original splendour, and is now permanently anchored at what must be the most beautiful spot in the whole of Central Switzerland – in the Lucerne bay.

Look out across the charming Old Town, the lake and the mountains while choosing from our mouth-watering menu.
