Very interesting and funny canal trip! This tour also takes you to the remote side arms of the Alster. Our captain and guide Jörg had a funny story to tell about everything and drew our attention to everything worth seeing. In any case, this trip is highly recommended. We were also provided with drinks by his nice companion Mareike.

Great and interesting event that you should take your time for! The canals, sometimes narrow, sometimes wider with feudal villas, private jetties and countless stand-up paddlers, pedal boats and canoes are well worth seeing and technically a challenge for the captain in some places, especially because of the many people on the water.

The 2-hour tour takes you through the entire inner and outer Alster and also shows you beautiful side arms and canals - a great experience all round. And on top of that we had a great captain who told us interesting facts and anecdotes in a humorous and interesting way. Absolutely to recommend!
