Boat cruise on lake Mondsee

What is more beautiful than a voyage over a lake in the Salzkammergut area?

The ship's bell is ringing and the captain asks the passangers for coming on bord. Take your seat at the upper deck, a refreshing drink in your hand and here we go - ship cruising over lake Mondsee in the Salzkammergut area.

Immediately after departing the passangers get new insights into the marvellous landscape. From the water you are able to spot things which cannot be seen from the landside. The old villas in an area called "black india" (Schwarzindien) is followed by the nature conservation area "magic forest". Here the herons are breeding and can be observed. The hole in the dragonwall (Drachenwand), the mountain looking like a huge cliff, seems to be tiny but in fact it has a dimension of almost 8m. On sunny days you always spot climbers on the rope bridge which is part of the via ferrata dragonwall. 

The captain is explaining history and landscape of lake Mondsee. With charme and fun he also tells legends from the area. Please ask for an English explanation.

Very popular are theme cruises. The kids are enjoying the ship's kobold cruise to the magic forest with Captain Bettina . Of course the kids may steer the big boat themselves. If you are hungry we recommend a "Schweinsbratenfahrt" - traditional Austrian cuisine made by the captain's wife is served on bord.
