What people are saying about Baden-Württemberg

Finally opened the Neckar again. We were lucky with the weather. The crew is incredibly nice, service is very good. The food is good too. The only disadvantage is that it does not say anywhere that children from 12 years of age have to take or show a corona test. Thank God, we were there very early and therefore had no time problem.

At first we thought that it would be hot in the sunny weather, the opposite was the case. Waiting in the queue in the sun was worth it. A warm welcome, despite the corona conditions. The ride was worth seeing and refreshing and the staff was very friendly. Kapiten was also impressive.

A very nice and friendly staff, everyone from the captain to the ground staff has been told that what they do is fun. We also found the short stories that were recorded to be very amusing but also informative.

Very nice and pleasant journey, friendly staff, weather wasn't sunny, rained all day, otherwise everything was great.

Very nice staff, great trip, price was more than okay,
