This resulted in the historical profession of the salt skipper. Since 2014, guests from around the world have the opportunity to experience a piece of this history. Experience Lake Hallstatt at its best during a romantic full moon trip. Let yourself be enchanted by the picturesque backdrop of the world famous tourist town at night and enjoy some carefree holiday hours aboard a traditional salt ship.
Come aboard! Boating back to yesteryear
Take an extraordinary ride on Lake Hallstatt with NAVIA, and turn back time. In a Zille, sister to those that transported the “white gold” from Hallstatt’s Salzberg, or Salt Mountain, into the wider world 500 years ago. The Zille is a historical boat type with a flat bottom. However, a Zille of the form typical for this area of Austria, the Salzkammergut, is called a Plätte or a Fuhre (“Fua”). Fuhren were working boats that once plied the waters of Lake Hallstatt and the River Traun. NAVIA will allow you to experience the unique appeal of this bygone era in a novel, wonderful way on board one of our hand-crafted, faithful reproductions of a historical Fuhre. . The fleet currently consists of two Zillen, both 12 metres long and 1.8 metres wide. A boatman with a steady hand will accompany you on your ride. Along the way, he will relate stories from the history of the region around the lake. And tell you just about everything you want to know about Hallstatt, the lake and the Zillen.
