The Königstein is a river cruise ship built in 1992 by the Arminius shipyard in Bodenwerder. Due to its compact design, the Königstein can also be used on stretches of water that cannot be passed by larger ships due to water depths, clear heights and lock dimensions


From 1998 to 2008, the Königstein was a river cruise ship owned by the Peter Deilmann shipping company. Sailing under German flag, cruises were offered on the Havel, Elbe, Vltava, Oder and on the Bodden. From 2008 to 2014, the ship was in the program of the cruise operator Nicko-Tours. In spring 2014, the Königstein was purchased by Favorit Reisen in Heilbronn, which already owns the Rossini.

For the BUGA 2015, the Königstein operated on Havel cruises linking the four locations in Havelberg, Rathenow, Premnitz and Brandenburg

Since 2016, the ship has been used on 8-day cruises from/to Stralsund including visits to Rügen, Hiddensee, the Darss and Usedom as well as on 8-day river cruises from Potsdam to Stralsund and in the opposite direction with passages on the Havel, Oder and through the Bodden. As in the previous year, the shipping company also offers 5-day cruises from Potsdam to Havelberg and vice versa. In addition, there are 8-day combined Elbe, Havel and Elbe-Havel Canal river cruises that start and end in Potsdam. Shore excursions are included on all passages.


The 33 air-conditioned passenger cabins with a total of 70 beds are arranged on the main deck(Havel deck) and the upper deck(Elbe deck). The reception, bar and restaurant are also located on the upper deck. The open-air deck is equipped with a sun roof, sunshades, seating areas and sunbeds and is accessible from the upper deck by stairs.
