The cruise was very pleasant, and covered both the city and the harbor. It lasted 1.5 hours which was worth it price wise. The crew was very nice and you could buy drinks on the ship. Too bad that the cruise is only in German and there is no commentary in English also.

We took the boat tour on the evening of the 5th of June. It was lovely and warm. Commentary was interesting with some brakes to give use time to enjoy the ambiance of sailing around in the dark. See the harbour and the cargo ships was very impressive and we loved the fact that being in small vessel meant we were able to access waterways that bigger vessels would not be able to use. All in all an enjoyable evening.

For only 20 euros you got an unbelievable amount on offer here. We were able to learn many interesting things from the guide. The 1.5 hours went by really quickly. Super friendly service on board, cold drinks and blankets on deck. The journey was fascinating and definitely worth it. Top!
