Shipping Zell am See-Kaprun

Plenty of views & comfortable - a tour by excursion boat on Lake Zell

From where do you have the best view to the Zell am See peninsula? There is a place in Zell am See-Kaprun, from where you have the best views to the historic old town and its beautiful buildings; to the alpine landscape behind the town, the snow-covered mountains of the Hohe Tauern and lush, green slopes of the Pinzgau Grass Hills. Enjoy unforgettable insights into and vistas of the region from a very special perspective ON Lake Zell.

Here, you can find detailed information of the prices and lake crossing trips.

Just sunshine from early morning to late in the evening

This is the motto in the middle of Lake Zell. Mountain panoramas alternate with the scenery of the town Zell am See - you won't know where to look first on a panorama tour by boat on Lake Zell. But you have plenty of time because speed is not the top priority of the Lake Zell shipping fleet. The sundeck of the MS Schmittenhöhe promises especially spectacular views to the Steinerne Meer to the north, the Hohe Tauern to the south, the Zell local mountain, the Schmittenhöhe, to the west or the town of Zell am See directly in front of the mountain. Real time travel can be experienced when you go on board of the excursion boat with the longest tradition. The Nostalgieschiff Libelle was built in 1947 and is still in service on Lake Zell today. Another "elderly lady", the Kaiserin Elisabeth, not only offers great views through old panorama windows dating back several decades but also promises a certain imperial flair of bygone days.

Four boats of different sizes

Are available if you are interested in a boat trip on Lake Zell. MS Schmittenhöhe is the biggest and most comfortable of the boats, offering room for 255 passengers and is especially suitable for company events, presentations & diverse occasions. Bridal couples will not only fall in love with each other but also with the boat while enjoying unforgettable moments with their happy wedding guests on Lake Zell. Kaiserin Elisabeth, MS Großglockner and Nostalgieschiff Libelle are the names of the three other excursion boats. Panorama, liner & special tours will take you across, around or to the middle of Lake Zell at different speeds, with different numbers of fellow travellers and on diverse routes. Enjoy the weather, the sunshine and the crystal-clear water on an excursion boat trip in Zell am See-Kaprun.
