Enjoy an impressive boat trip on Lake Hallstatt. As it has been for over 150 years, take a boat through the world cultural and natural heritage landscape and look at it from a completely different angle.

Shipping with tradition

Lake Hallstatt is connecting Dachstein communities, Hallstatt, Obertraun, Bad Goisern and Gosau as the centre, and shipping has always played an important role as a mode of transport. But also an event for connoisseurs, because only from the lake do you have a unique view of the World Heritage site and the surrounding mountains of the Dachstein Salzkammergut holiday region.

Boat trips at Lake Hallstatt since 1862

Since the railway station in Hallstatt is located on the other side of the lake, there is a liner boat service from Hallstatt railway station to Hallstatt. The liner "Stephanie" regularly sails to the trains all year round. The line Hallstatt to the railway station, exists since 1881, is until today the only ship connection on an Austrian lake, which is maintained also during the winter months.
The Lake Hallstatt Schifffahrt Hemetsberger GmbH, owned by the Hemetsberger family since autumn 1967, consists of a fleet of four ships.
