Covid-19: All information on corona-related measures

The shipping company is considered to be a public transport. And this means that the same rules apply as in the subway, for example. Therefore a social distance is not required. But it is Bavarian law to wear a face-covering when travelling on public transport (also in the queue, on the pier and on the boats). There is no general capacity restriction on the boats.

Since the health protection of the guests is important to us, only about 2/3 of the usual capacity is provided by the ticket sales. This is a voluntary measure of our company  to reduce the number of people in St. Bartholomä and Salet. Because of this measure we will probably be sold out in good weather early afternoon or the next possibility to drive is not for a few hours and you have to pass the time until then with a little hike.
The boats on the way to St. Bartholomä or Salet are loaded with 2/3 as well.  Nevertheless, some people may feel a sense of narrowness, as our boats are not very spacious.

Way back from St. Bartholomä or Salet
The Corona pandemic also has an influence on guest behaviour. We note, however, that the guests like to stay longer at the Königssee and start the return journey from St. Bartholomä and Salet later in the afternoon. In addition, there are an unknown number of climbers (mountaineers will have to expect longer waiting times) every day who also want to be transported in the late afternoon hours. We are therefore forced to reduce waiting times to put more passengers on the boats in the late afternoon hours.
As a general rule, the earlier you start the return journey, the more relaxed the situation is in the queue area as well as on the boats (more social distance).  Please take this into account in your planning.

Please wear a face mask!


  • When you buy the ticket.
  • In the queue.
  • When you get on and off the ship.
  • As with other public transport, the social distances cannot always be observed, the face mask is of particular importance during the entire boat trip.

Excluded from this are persons according to the Bayerischen Infektionsschutzgesetz § 1, Abs. 2, Nummer 1 - 3, for example children under 6 years.

Please keep your distance!

Please keep a minimum distance of 1.5 metres from other passengers or our ship's crew when purchasing tickets, when boarding and disembarking . Please also remember to keep the minimum distance in the sanitary facilities on land.

Wash your hands regulary!

Please wash and disinfect your hands regularly. In the entrance area of our ships you will find disinfectants accordingly. 

Sneeze in the crook of your arm, please!

Healthy on board

As much as we are pleased about your visit, please refrain from taking a boat trip if you show signs of illness. If acute symptoms of illness occur during the cruise, please contact the boat crew immediately.
