Nostalgic Paddle Steamer

Ferries have been running on Lake Wolfgangsee since imperial times. In 1873, the 33-meters-long paddle steamer Kaiser Franz Josef I was launched. Now as then, the nostalgic ship is in operation (daily in good weather until 1 September 2019) and guarantees an unforgettable journey through the wonderful Salzkammergut region. The ship travels between the piers in St. Wolfgang and St. Gilgen.
