Lake Wolfgang shipping

General information

In 1873 the paddle steamer "Kaiser Franz Josef I." was launched and named in honor of the ruling Austrian monarch. With its elegant silhouette and impressive side wheels, the 33m long ship continues to impress and delight all the guests that came aboard today.

The "Kaiser" has been in service since the very beginning of passenger navigation on the Wolfgangsee and remains the star of the fleet. The iconic vessel has starred in many feature films and was recently refurbished. Taking a cruise on "Kaiser Franz Josef I." or any of the modern ships is the ideal way to experience the lovely landscape of the Wolfgangsee with its different points of interest.
