Today it is much more peaceful here as day trippers cross the tranquil lake, restaurants serve the local red chalk fish, and hikers and mountain bikers explore the pre-Alpine landscapes. There are plenty of resting and bathing facilities along the way, such as the Lido in Oberägeri.

A round trip can also be combined with a cruise. The existing fleet of two small ships on Lake Ägeri calls at several landing stations around the lake and in addition to the regular scheduled runs from May to October, special excursions are also made.

In 1890 the Oberägeri steamboat company commissioned its first steamboat, “Morgarten I”, nicknamed “the wooden shoe”. Sunk after six years following a wind storm, the boat was salvaged a year later and fitted with a petrol engine. It continued to ply the waters of Lake Ägeri for another 20 years.
