Full description
Cruise up the Karl-Heine-Kanal in its full length to Lindenauer Harbour, taking in the architecture of Leipzig's historic buildings along the way. Learn the significance of the city's historical sites while viewing them from a unique perspective.  See the villa of the famous Baedeker family whose publishing business is well known among travelers around the globe. Continue to the Palmengartenwehr, a vital part of Leipzig's public flood protection facilities. Head to the western territories and enjoy a brief moment of silence in a natural area. Admire the architecture of the textile factories of the Buntgarnwerke, a former yarn mill built in the late 19th century and one of the largest Wilhelminian-era industrial sites in Germany. Meandering through the Karl Heine Canals, explore one of the most interesting areas of Leipzig, the old industrial district of Plagwitz. Karl Heine, a lawyer, entrepreneur, and industrial pioneer, played a key role in the urban development of Leipzig’s western areas. See the striking Stelzenhaus and the Lindenauer Harbour at the last stop of the tour before heading back to the city harbor where you can enjoy a cold drink at the beach bar.  The harbor is perfectly located if you wish to continue exploring Leipzig after the motorboat tour.

    The ship is less suitable for a longer trip because there is only a metal rod in the back.
