Advance information - Summer 2019

    Once again, neither the ZSG nor the SBB make any reference as to which sailings will be operated by the paddle steamers in their official timetables
    However the latest official ZSG "Excursion Leaflet" includes the following summary as their normal schedule, but subject to day-to-day alterations and weather permitting
             BEWARE - other publications show..........
sailings 111-112 to operate Mondays and THURSDAYS
also sailings 103-104-113-114 to operate TUESDAYS and Wednesdays as in 2018 !!!!!

    If you particularly want to sail on a paddle steamer........
........confirm a day or two beforehand direct with the ZGV
      (rather than risk being caught out)
    This would make a lot of sense,  particularly on those Thursdays
    when there is an evening
"BBQ Cruise"
    The information on this website will now reflect the above in the interim along with any known advertised "special" sailings
    Any 'day to day' variations to the above will ONLY be shown if they are " confirmed to me" - which is where YOU can help if you observe anything different on a specific day !!!!
    It should be noted all sailings shown could again be operated by just one paddle steamer in the event of problems - as first happened in 2016 following the severe damage to the piston rings of the high pressure cylinder of PS Stadt Rapperswil
    It is occasionally possible that on busy days both paddle steamers will be in service,  with the second covering some sailings shown for motor vessels on a non-advertised basis - but this has become more and more rare in recent years
