Great Audio if You Can Hear It

A large group of middle aged loudly yacking Germans ruined the trip for the rest of us, both English and German speaker. We were inside because it was such a hot day. No doubt the audio was ok on the upper deck on the outside, Beautiful modern boat with great service. Just try to avoid a group booking. The scenery is beautiful

Nice way to spend a gloomy afternoon

This boat ride was quick and simple, but the commentary (in English and German) was interesting. Not a bad way to spend what was a gloomy Sunday afternoon. Oh and the hot chocolate was yum! Just make sure you have enough time to go tonthe ticket booth to get your ticket (you need a paper ticket even though you have an electronic one) and find the wharf (which you won’t know until you go to the ticket booth)

Comfortable boat, with options for eating, drinking & lots of seating

Our voucher was swapped for tickets at a booth beside the Elbe River and we joined a queue at dock number 4. The boat was large with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. Snacks and meals were available for purchase as well as a variety of drinks. The commentary was in German and English at various intervals of the ride and provided good information. We were lucky with 80 degree weather!
