Zugerland Verkehrsbetriebe

Our fleet

The first launch in 1851 was the start of Zugersee Schifffahrt. Even though steam is no longer used in this day and age, scheduled and special cruises on the lake with the most beautiful sunset are as popular as ever. 

Launched in 2003, MS Zug received the international "iF Design award" in Hanover in 2004, and the "Holzpreis Zentralschweiz" award in 2006.
