Our history dates all the way back to 1909. And because so many interesting things have happened, such as the long journey made by the passenger ships from Bonn via Höllenstraße to Lake Titisee or the difficulties during the depression, famous guests, funny anecdotes and impressive building conversions, and also because there are so many fascinating old pictures and documents that bear witness to over 100 years of history, a 180-page chronicle was produced to celebrate the 100-year anniversary.


Entertainingly written and packed with photographs, letters and drawings, it will be enjoyed by anyone who is a sailor at heart or who feels a connection to Lake Titisee.


The chronicle can be ordered from us in hardback.
