Boat trips on Lake Forggensee

The romantic soul of Bavaria

1st June until 15th October 2018


Lake Forggensee Today lake Forggensee is considered as one of the most beautiful areas for watersport and leisure time activities in the bavarian alpine foothills. Waterlovers can try out a different bay every day. Surfers, yachtsmen, fishermen and boatsmen will also find perfect conditions. A very special experience is a canoe-sunset-tour. Hikers and cyclists will like the 32 kilometre circular route around the lake. What you don‘t see when the largest lake of the Allgäu region is at its full water level, is that it is an artificial lake that was created after the war. In spring 1954 the lake „Lech“ with its length of 12 kilometres and its width of 3 kilometres was dammed up for the first time. The alternate damming in spring and water release in autumn decreases the danger of flooding after the melting of the snow and regulates the water flow at the hydroelectric power stations along the river Lech. Allow yourself a special „see-trip“: the further the ship leaves the southern lakeshore the more magnificent is the panoramic view of the imposing mountains of the Ammergau, Lechtal and Tannheim alps, the kings castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau and the silhouette of the town of Füssen. The two boats of the Forggensee shipping company of Füssen sail a regular service with round trips of two different lengths from 1st June until 15th October. The small round trip in the southern part of the lake takes about one hour. The large round trip takes two hours and takes its passengers to the dam which is located on the northern shore. It is possible to interrupt the journey at any stop for a lunch or coffee break. Walks, hikes and cycle-tours around Lake Forggensee can also be combined with part of the journey on board – bicycles can be carried on board in limited numbers with a small additional charge. Our insider tip for photos of castle Neuschwanstein.

In addition to the regular timetable the Forggensee shipping company offers special trips in July and August 2018: • Romantic evening-trips 04.07. / 18.07. / 08.08. and 29.08.2018 • King Ludwig evening-trips 11.07. / 01.08. and 22.08.2018 • Evening-trips with live-music 25.07. and 15.08.2018 Fare per person: 15,00 € Departure for all trips at 7.30 p.m. at the boat harbour in Füssen and 7.45 p.m. at the landing place in Waltenhofen.

Musical: Swan Prince As one of the first musicals at all, „The Swan-Prince – live your dream” takes place at its original location on board of a boat and on land. You go on board of the MS „Füssen“, which is the first musical-boat in Germany and within the twilight the fantastic musical-adventure starts right in front of the Neuschwanstein Castle. While experiencing the actors on the boat very close you can watch scenes where the myths and legends of King Ludwig II become real. The musical tells the story of a young prince, who was brave enough to believe in his dreams and to live them as a king. There will be 15 performances in July and August 2018.
