PS Schiller

Stepping aboard the "Schiller" is like traveling back in time. The richly upholstered salon is particularly beautiful because of the artfully crafted wood panels, which feature geometric motifs in an Art Nouveau style.

The steamboat "Schiller" is well suited for private happy hour cruises or events with friends and family. Due to the fresh air upper deck, it is also a classic "summer ship" and best used between May and October.
