Public boat rides with Plätten

For individuals, families and small groups. 

A boat ride on the Salzach reveals the town from a beautiful new perspective. On the wooden boats called „Plätten“ previously used to transport salt, the  “white gold” was transported from the salt mine at Hallein near Salzburg to Burghausen in the Middle Ages.

After embarking at Tittmoning or Raitenhaslach, you can glide softly through the charming landscape of the Salzach Valley. Approaching  Burghausen, an unforgettable scene comes into view – the grand castle complex looming protectively over the picturesque old town.

Dates for 2024

The Plätten boat rides start at 2 pm in Tittmoning - bus departure at 1:05 pm from the stop at the town square in Burghausen | 1:10 pm departure from the train station Burghausen.

The boat ride takes place with a minimum of 15 participants.
