MS München on Lake Constance

Passenger ships

Discover Lake Constance on the White Fleet

A light breeze that strokes your face. The unmistakable smell of the fresh Lake Constance air. A glass of wine by the ship’s rail as you look out across the great expanse of the lake: A cruise with the White Fleet means taking a time out. Or how about a refined gala dinner, dancing throughout the night, and a firework display? The fleet of the “Vereinigten Schifffahrtsunternehmen für den Bodensee und Rhein” (VSU) offers numerous opportunities to get away from the daily routine for a while.

Daily cruises

The White Fleet is a consortium of Swiss, Austrian and German passenger ship companies that bring guests to beautiful locations with regularly scheduled service from Easter through late fall. The White Fleet sails directly to the front door of many attractions including Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen and SEA LIFE Constance from multiple ports-of-call. It’s easy to escape life on land—if only for a few hours with daily departures from the Upper Lake, Lower Lake, Überlinger Lake and Rhine River.

3-country Panorama Tour

The 3-country Panorama Tour is a great way to explore Germany, Austria, and Switzerland in a day. The Lake Constance bike route is directly linked with White Fleet ports-of-call, making the bike-and-boat combination the easiest way to get around the lake.

Tipp: On Mondays, bikes are free on the Obersee and the Überlinger See (except 27 June–6 September 2020 and holidays).

Culinary and Theme Ships

The White Fleet ships offer many different culinary options from drinks and snacks to full gala menus. Regional and seasonal specialties sweeten any sunset cruise. Music theme cruises bring rhythm and dance on the water. Watching fireworks light up the sky is a Lake Constance tradition, like the August 8, 2020 Seenachtfest in Konstanz and Kreuzlingen, Switzerland. The ship’s deck is the best place to watch these world-class pyrotechnic shows.

Each year, the Bregenz Music Festival in Austria hosts world-class opera on the lakefront. The White Fleet music festival cruises are legendary, bringing guests directly to the floating stage in Bregenz, and include a special opera menu.

Winter cruising

Even in winter, the White Fleet sails with a diverse program of nostalgic fun for the whole family. In the period leading up to Christmas, Advent cruises are organised and New Year’s cruises are a special way to celebrate the holiday season.
