What people are saying about Baden-Württemberg

The jetty is located on the Neckar beach (10 minutes' walk from the Old Bridge = on the side of the old town). In front of the ticket counter there are big stone steps to wait for. The ride is very relaxed and really highly recommended! The captain even walked through our trip personally and took the drink orders...

The Neckar river cruise is a relaxing way to enjoy a hot summer evening in Heidelberg. The spectacular view of the city embedded within the old town and its centuries-old architecture against the green hills makes this cruise worthwhile.

Good opportunity to get a small overview of Heidelberg with its sights and history. There were drinks to buy on board, the audio guide was entertaining and in English and German.

All in all a wonderful cruise. The staff was very friendly. The drinks are good and the prices reasonable.

We loved our boat tour! It was beautiful and told us history. Would recommend!
