Lake Wolfgang Cruise

In 1873 the paddle steamer "Kaiser Franz Josef I." was launched and named in honor of the Austrian emperor Franz-Joseph. Its elegant silhouette and impressive side wheels still impress all the guests today.

The "Kaiser" has been in service since the very beginning of passenger cruises on Lake Wolfgang and remains the star of the fleet. A cruise on "Kaiser Franz Josef I." or on any other boat is the ideal way to experience the lovely landscape of the Wolfgangsee with its different points of interest.

From late April to late October the WolfgangseeSchifffahrt provides boat service on the lake.
