On board the four Rursee ships, the Rursee and Obersee as well as the unique landscape of the Eifel National Park can be explored in comfort.

The noiseless electric ships "St. Nikolaus" and "Seensucht" operate on the Obersee. The quiet gliding over the Obersee and through the surrounding Eifel National Park is unique and can be experienced during a tour to the “Urftstaumauer”, to Rurberg or to Einruhr.

You can experience the Rursee on board the “Stella Maris” or “Aachen”. Between Schwammenauel and Rurberg, you can explore the lake, which is popular for water sports, on a tour.

The most popular tours:
Tour Obersee | Duration 1h or 2h
Rursee round trip | Duration 1.45h
2-lake tour | Duration 3h or 4h

A boat trip on the Rursee and Obersee can be perfectly combined with a hike or bike tour.

Further information on the landing stages, the current timetable and prices can be found on the website of Rursee-Schifffahrt.
