Due to health and safety reasons, access to the engine rooms on either our steamboats or motor vessels is restricted to staff only. On all of the nostalgic paddle steamers you have an excellent open view of the working engine from the main deck and can also observe the turning paddle wheels through glass windows. In case you have any additional technical questions, please just ask a member of the boat crew for further information.
In case you are seriously interested in shipping, our exclusive VIP Experience Day package offer does offer full access to both the wheel house as well as the engine room. The VIP experience is available on either a historic paddle steamer or a modern motor vessel.
