MS Wädenswil

MS Wädenswil

The motor vessel Wädenswil of the Lake Zurich Shipping Company was commissioned in 1968. The MS Wädenswil runs a scheduled course on Lake Zurich, but is also frequently booked for events. Since the latter is becoming increasingly important as a source of income for the shipping companies, the decision was made to give the ship a new interior design in addition to a technical update of the heating and insulation and adjustments to fire protection and disability regulations. Susanne Fritz Architects won the competition. The dominant colours are shades of blue and grey, inspired by the water and sky. The golden anodised window frames are retained and details from the 1960s are reinterpreted in a modern way or combined with contemporary details. Gastronomically, the ZSG is relying on a new concept: a buffet in the 2nd class with a counter allows guests to serve themselves. In the 1st class, the ZSG continues to rely on white laid tables with table service.

The MS Wädenswil was completed in spring 2021.
