Navia Hallstatt – boat tour on Lake Hallstatt

Navia Hallstatt - Zille - Obertraun

Go with Navia on an extraordinary ride on Lake Hallstatt and go back in time. In Zille, the sister of those who 500 years ago transported salt from the Hallstatt Salzberg, or Salt Mountain, to the wider world.

Zille or Plätte or Fuhre

The Zille is a historical type of flat-bottomed boat. However, Zille in the form typical of this region of Austria, the Salzkammergut, is called Plätte or Fuhre. The Fuhre was a working boat that once plied the waters of Lake Hallstatt and the River Traun. Navia allows you to experience the unique appeal of this bygone era in a fresh, wonderful way aboard one of the hand-crafted, faithful reproductions of vintage Fuhres.

Come aboard on Zille

Navia invites you to enjoy the unique scenery and special charm of Lake Hallstatt on board Zilles, which are exact reproductions of historic ships. Either on a cruise, on a regular connection or on one of the themed rides. Whichever option you choose, your ride will give you the opportunity to see and feel the lake, the mountains and Hallstatt from a very special perspective.

Navia Hallstatt fleet

The fleet currently consists of four Zilles, each 12m long and 1.8m wide. A boatman with a steady hand will accompany you on your ride. Along the way, he will tell stories from the history of the region around the lake. And we will tell you almost everything you want to know about Hallstatt, the lake and the Zille.
