Overall rating

(28 reviews)

I happened upon this factory tour through GetYourGuide and wanted to find out more. It is primarily about drinks for people, but also about products for animals and your own garden and more. The products are created through fermentation processes, are of organic quality and are said to have a positive effect on the gastrointestinal tract and thus also on health. The guided tour including the tasting was very interesting, instructive and highly recommended.

great island We have seen a lot. Driving with the ship, with the rabid Roland and also with the city train (bimmelbahn) were always an experience. Our Hotel Solthus in Baabe was so cheap that we even left our car at home and still got everywhere. We'll definitely be back

The harbor tour was very informative. There was food on board. Can only recommend it to anyone who wants to experience and explore Stralsund. For us as "first time visitors" to the city

The trip was very informative but also a bit long. Our daughter found it boring at times. Luckily we saw a few seals.

The tour guide was very friendly, it was very informative.
