The paddle steamer leaves the pier "full astern" as she returns to Liverpool
after a well loaded afternoon cruise to Puffin Isle

Following her "one day" visit to Llandudno, she has to moved "south" for an
interesting selection of sailings on the Bristol Channel, South Coast and the River Thames

The paddle steamer "turns its back on the waiting passengers"
Despite not having visited for over 15 years, the captain did not even attempt
to call at the re-built pier head leaving over 500 "upset" passengers
as she quickly turned and "hid" behind the Great Orme

(including the two which are International)

** HISTORY **
Things haven't changed much on Lake Brienz
over the last 47 years !
Mondays to Fridays 1975
Saturdays 1975         Sundays 1975
23rd December 2002
** HISTORY **
LAKE GENEVA  -  mid-1980's
Who wanted to know then which sailings
were operated by paddle steamers ?

In the peak-Summer of 1984 only one afternoon sailing
(starting Lausanne) was advertised as such in the official timetable !
along with the Saturday evening dance cruise
(an extension of the daily sailing 76)
Updates are usually posted between 1400 and 2400 the previous day

This website site was originally planned to simply give a historical record of the timetabled sailings
made by the paddle steamers on the principle Swiss lakes

However, over the years it has gradually expanded to also give future sailings expected to be operated by the
18 remaining Swiss Paddle Steamers

(including the three Lake Geneva diesel-electric "motor paddle vessels" #)
on
Lakes Brienz  Geneva #  Luzern  Neuchâtel  Thun and Zurich

However, in order to help holidaymakers and others plan their lake cruises,
where advance information is not yet available
LINKS  will lead to the equivalent period during the previous year(s)

For those not familiar with the area
Summary of Sailings Index and Map Index pages are available
with further links to
"detailed summaries" of the sailings on each lake

PLEASE check with the operators nearer the time, as they often have to make
late changes, especially to the vessel operating a particular sailing


# - One of which (MPV Helvétie is presently "long-term laid-up" awaiting restoration


Lake Konstanz
(Switzerland/
Germany/Austria)

This website also gives Swiss information on the one remaining operational
German paddle steamer
which occasionally visits Swiss piers
This now includes Konstanz which is just three minutes by train "across the border"
Lake Maggiore
(Switzerland/Italy)

This website also gives limited Swiss and Italian information on the one remaining
Italian paddle steamer
now returned to service following a major rebuild which has in the past occasionally visited the Swiss piers
(Sadly with one exception since 2008 her only sailings are private charters)
Lake Como
(Italy)

This website also gives limited information about the two remaining
Italian paddle steamers
both of which are undertaking
major re-builds in 2013
Lake Garda
(Italy)

This website also gives limited information about the two remaining
Italian motor paddle vessels
which usually operate timetabled services on a non-advertised basis during the main summer
also the occasional special
"Regatta" sailings

Note: Additional sailings are operated by motor vessels on all the lakes featured
Individual timetables lead from the links on each lake index (and archive index) page
Where timetables are large (mainly during peak summer dates),
it is advisable to
Open Frame in New Window

(a Restore Frames link is provided at the bottom right of every page)
Most underlined text will lead to an additional page
and larger pictures can be found by clicking on many of the small pictures

This site has been created from scratch. Whilst much of the basic information contained herein could be found by studying and translating timetables issued by the various companies, I have set out to present the timetables of the sailings on all lakes in English in a consistant simplified form
They will normally be available for historical reference after expiry of official publicity - please e-mail me if you are unable to find any particular timetable or you find any link not working
(note: many old timetables were 'lost' when my webhost's server crashed some years ago and I have not had the time to re-create them all - any specific ones you request I will attempt to restore as long as I still have the information or if you can supply the details)

The timetables on this site normally only show the public regular and special sailings planned to be operated by paddle steamers (PSs)
(or - if I have been advised - day to day variations and/or what actully happened on the day)
[Note:- in the cases of Lake Geneva and Lake Garda, they also include those sailings operated by the operational motor paddle vessel (MPVs) $]
Sailings operated by a motor vessel are normally only shown when they deputise for a paddle steamer   -  or when a paddle steamer may cover on certain dates
   $ - on Lake Geneva (MPV Helvétie and MPV Italie have been 'long-term' laid-up since early-Spring 2002 and late-Winter 2005 respectively

In order to further simplify presentation, timetables are split into limited dates to obviate
(a) the wavy lines - also other irritating notes which are so common in most official timetables (sometimes only in the 'local' language)
(b) a single multi-coloured column - where only part(s) of the sailing apply on some dates


Details of any day-to-day late variations to the
basic sailings
will only be posted if  you advised me accordingly

Further timetables for 2022 are gradually being added/updated for those lakes which have declared their
(in some cases revised) intentions

Please BOOKMARK this site NOW
and revisit again soon !
