Motor ship Oesterreich
Welcome aboard the jewel of Lake Constance.
The Oesterreich was put into service in 1928 and ushered in the era of motor ships on Lake Constance. Till this day, the first large motor ship on Lake Constance still transports the same flair and luxury of that era. Enjoy a journey through time on what is probably the most beautiful originally renovated Art Deco motor ship in Europe – equipped with all the comforts of modern times and bookable at any time of the year. The pride of the Austrian fleet at that time was known as the "luxury liner". Like so many historic ships, the Oesterreich was due to be scrapped in 2012. However, the beautiful Art Deco motor ship was recently repaired with great effort and is now back in operation alongside the historic Hohentwiel steam ship.
The Oesterreich is not just enchantingly elegant on the outside. Anyone who crosses the gangway, slowly approaches the vessel and is warmly greeted by the nautical crew on board will immediately feel the incredible levity that is inherent in this ship. The atmosphere on board is bubbling with exhilaration – like a glass of champagne. By the time you've completed your first tour, when you glide out onto the lake on the deck of this dream ship with a delicious aperitif in your hand, you can be sure that every one of your everyday worries will have melted away. After the ship's extensive renovation, every little detail shines through.
