Unterwalden

Paddle steamer Unterwalden, sister of paddle steamer Uri, was built in 1902 by Escher Wyss and has since plied the waters of Lake Lucerne with only a few years of interruption. Information and photos on Unterwalden can be found at paddlesteamers.info or on the German webpage of 'Dampferfreunde Vierwaldstättersee' where one also finds a detailed description of the more recent extensive refit of Unterwalden.
Unterwalden's rich history is full of interesting details - she has hosted personalities such as Winston Churchill her steam engine was displayed at the 1900 Paris World Fair before she was completed.
Visit the webpage of Unterwalden's operator Schifffahrtsgesellschaft des Vierwaldstättersees for schedules and other information relating to her operation. www.swissitalianpaddlesteamers.com is a private, independent site also offering information on schedules.

I extend my deepest gratitude towards the captain and crew of Unterwalden for their cooperation and hospitality in allowing me to film aboard on Christmas Day.
