Full description
See Heidelberg from a different point of view and cruise the Neckar River. Sit back and relax as you glide along the water, underneath the Old Bridge with a unique view of the Heidelberg Castle. Opt to purchase a drink or snack and capture the best highlights in a short period of time. Head toward the Old Bridge and capture first views of the Heidelberg Castle. Admire the partially rebuilt structure, nestled within a hill and looking over the old city. Afterward, the ship will steer alongside the Neuenheimer riverbank, with its majestic villas and the famous Philosophenweg. Experience the ship turnaround at the Wielblinger Wehrsteg, and drive upstream along the historic town hall back to the pier. If you get peckish, snacks and drinks are available for purchase as you see the major highlights in one sweet trip.

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...

Very pleasant 50 minutes spent on board the cruise ship. During the voyage, the captain describes the monuments in a humorous way. Giving you a non-overwhelming amount of information. Just right. In addition, you can take advantage of the gastronomy during the cruise. I recommend it for small and large tourists :)

It was a small loop between the locks. Explained some of the sights seen from the water in 3 languages.
