A light breeze that strokes your face, rays of sunshine on the water and the scent of summer in the air: That is the Lake Constance Feeling. The best time on Lake Constance is spent on the water. Because here you can literally enjoy a short vacation. The White fleet of the VSU (an association of Lake Constance and Rhine river shipping companies) has the right offer for every taste. With the Bodensee Card PLUS you get free travel on the Passenger ships on 2 of the 3 or 4 of the 7 days. You do not need an additional ticket, but simply check in with your Bodensee Card PLUS.
The White Fleet is a assosiation of Swiss, Austrian and German passenger ship companies. With their motorboats - the so-called White Fleet - they take their guests to the most beautiful corners of Lake Constance. From Easter until late autumn, the extensive program offers experiences that are as diverse as the region itself.
With the daily scheduled boat trips on the Upper, Lower and Überlinger lake and along the Rhine, you can explore the region and its many sights at your own pace from the main towns on Lake Constance. From Constance, Lindau and Friedrichshafen, the White Fleet takes you right to the doorstep of many attractions. You can find all the Bodensee Card PLUS attractions here.
A boat trip is also perfect for the active and sporty amongst us. The scheduled trips are a perfect addition to many of the hikes and cycle trails. There are wonderful views from the many lovely cycling and hiking trails around Lake Constance. Once back on board, you can then sit back and relax with a well-earned drink on the way back.
There is plenty to experience on board the ships throughout the season. The VSU offer a broad program ranging from culinary cruises to special themed ships. Regional and seasonal specialties sweeten the sunset on board.
The trips to the Bregenz Festival are also legendary. The VSU offers take you directly to the lake stage on several dates in July and August. A menu on board sets the mood for the evening.
The boat companies also offer a varied program in winter: Advent cruises take place in the run-up to Christmas. And if you want to welcome in the New Year in a special way, a New Year's Eve cruise is just the thing for you.
