Hello sailor!

Dockyard tour

Our retired boat captains will take you on a dockyard tour, and show you sights which the public normally never sees – for example, the inside of an engine room and a visit to a boat wheelhouse. They'll be happy to share their experiences with you. And also tell a sailor's tale or two.


Monday to Saturday

  • 18 November to 20 December 2019


At the latest six weeks before your event.


Meeting point is directly in front of the Reception at the ZSG dockyard in Wollishofen.
