Navigation, Cableways and Tourism
From freight to tourism

You can see from the engine of the paddle steamer “Pilatus” or a hard-working ship’s diesel engine from 1929 what it takes to get a pleasure steamer or a river-boat moving. Working models and original vessels describe the history of navigation on rivers, lakes and at sea. In the multimedia Nautirama, you can experience at close quarters the turbulent development of the shipping companies on Lake Lucerne. The only permanent cableway exhibition in the world bears witness to the opening up of mountain peaks to tourism and winter sports. And you can observe a really unique Swiss journey on the “tourism flipper”.
