Chiemsee Rail made by KraussMaffei
131 years of living history

For 131 years, the Chiemsee Rail has been transporting tourists from the Prien train station to the Prien/Stock Harbor. It was built by one of our two founder companies Krauss & Comp. in 1887, by the order of Ludwig Fessler, a shipping operator who lived on the Chiemsee. Klaus Adelsperger, Senior Department Head for Installation and Control Engineering at KraussMaffei Automation, jumps into the story along with his good friend and descendant of Ludwig Fessler.
