Originally built in 1901, PS Uri is the oldest ship in our fleet and also the oldest paddler in Switzerland. The venerable vessel is in service from early spring to late autumn and then returns to operate popular winter cruises during Advent and the festive season in November and December. The ship is well suited for magical fondue cruises or exclusive gala dinners, thanks to the ornate Neo-Rococo salon with lavish wooden panels, carved sculptures and painted ceilings.
