The historical working ship: the Zille, the Plätte or the Fuhre ("Fua")

The "Zille" is called in Salzkammergut-Bauart (way to build) also "Fuhre" (dialect "Fua") or Plätte. In former times, the "Fuhren" were working ships, which were used both on Lake Hallstatt and in the Traun River to transport salt, the white gold of the Salzkammergut. On a round trip or line trip one is taken back to historical times and can see for oneself how difficult it is to drive a plateau.
