This was very useful for transport and discounts into museums. Be aware and dont make the same mistake as we did. I only saw 1 QR code on my confirmation, which I printed off and took with me. Stupidly I thought it was a code for the two of us. When I went to use it, they told me it was only one person. Now I am home I have checked and see its on a different page. I suggest buying it at the station then you get a card in your hand.

Nice boat. Clean. Furniture fine. The information is given in German and English. Tasty apple schorle that was brought quickly. Friendly service, the man even appeared to speak Dutch. Had a good time on this wonderful cruise. 5 stars

Lovely boat and very pleasant trip. The recorded English commentary could do with being revised by a native speaker - there were a few points where it was either slightly comic or not fully comprehensible.

Nice crew, nice tour. However, I would have liked to board in Rodenkirchen, which according to the website should be impossible due to the low water level. But then it was created there :-(
