Join in for the Lucerne Rowing World Cup, also known as the Lucerne Regatta, on July 8 – 10, 2022.

Rowing traditions

This event has been going on for over a hundred years, and it showcases the best in national and international rowing. The Lucerne Regatta is comparable to having its own sports genre, every year, over a thousand of the world’s elite best oarsmen and women compete for the World Cup Finals on the Rotsee. This lake is unique in the sense that is perfect for an international rowing competition, but it is usually only used as a racing location once a year, spending the rest of the year as a recreation and as a nature reserve.

The Lucerne Regatta Association

The Lucerne Regatta Association was founded in 1903, and since then, it has been organising rowing regattas in Lucerne. In 1962, the first World Rowing Championships took place on the Rotsee and have continued since then. In addition to the World Rowing Championships, Lucerne has also been the venue for the European Championships four times, and it hosts the annual Swiss Championships.
