The team and the trips of the CMS Schifffahrt are not for nothing among experienced Lake Constance tourists and locals as a special tip! Countless special trips, a year-round operation and wonderful ships with charter possibilities promise intensive moments on Lake Constance. Four ships with very different character take you on an excursion over Lake Constance.
Over 30 years of history
CMS - this abbreviation stands for the operator, Clemens Mauch, who has been travelling on Lake Constance since 1987. First as a sailor, only 4 years later as captain. Since then Clemens Mauch has worked for the major shipping companies on Lake Constance. He got to know the Obersee as well as the Überlinger See intensively. As a sailing instructor and shipyard captain everything revolves around ships. Clemens Mauch also knows the very special ships on Lake Constance very well: he was already a member of the crew of the largest event ship on Lake Constance, the MS Sun Queen, during the construction phase. After the christening of the ship, he was in action as skipper on the Swiss shore. He also spent a year on the 1st solar ferry HELIO. A skipper like from a picture book, who always has a smile on his lips.
Four ships with different characters
The FGS sea swallow as a solid wood mahogany boat with a carrying capacity of 43 persons, the MS Föhn as a medium-sized ship with a capacity of 120 persons, the MS Bodensee, which is suitable for up to 230 persons and has been sailing on Lake Constance since 1980, as well as the very special Lädine, a sailing boat from the Michelsen shipyard (Friedrichshafen). On the Lädine you will experience pure sailing. A highlight for the little Bodensee vacationers are the pirate trips, which take place regularly.
The ships depart from certain places at regular intervals and take your passengers from A to B comfortably and stress-free. Shipping on Lake Constance is also used as an alternative to the car. Many destinations can be reached directly or by a short walk. Especially trips to the island Mainau from the opposite shore are very suitable. Start relaxed in Nussdorf and Überlingen, enjoy a 30-minute boat ride and climb onto the island directly at the cargo dock on Mainau Island.
Departure from the harbour, a short break from everyday life, a relaxed cruise on the scheduled boat and back to the port of departure. During the round trips on Lake Constance you will be taken on a trip across the water. Great photo motifs and a unique view of the shores of Lake Constance await you. Whether 30 minutes before Friedrichshafen or Constance and Immenstaad, a large panoramic tour lasting several hours or a romantic trip into the sunset - the tours are simply pure relaxation.
Theme cruises and culinary cruises
Feast on Italian, enjoy Lake Constance fish and wine, marvel at fireworks during the Seenachtsfest and the Swiss National Day from the lake, exciting explorer and pirate trips for children, romantic night cruises, an enjoyable Sunday breakfast, winter Advent cruises, a Swiss Fondue Chionoise... The list of possible special cruises is too long to list them all. But the trips all have one thing in common: they promise a wonderful experience on great ships in a relaxed atmosphere and there is certainly a suitable trip for everyone!
