"...then suddenly a huge black shadow appears - the silhouette of the ship's hull emerges..."
On February 12. 1864, the steamship "Jura" sinks to the bottom of Lake Constance after a collision with the "Stadt Zürich". The accident is soon forgotten. Only about 100 years later the wreck is rediscovered by coincidence.
At a depth of 40 meters the "Jura" presents one of the most challenging diving destinations on Lake Constance. What makes it so fascinating for divers from all over the world? The spectacular wreck is one of the few known industrial monuments under water. Legends surround the former cargo ship that go far beyond its original significance.
