I take these buses in every city to see as much as possible in a short time ... the buses always run at regular intervals ... it was a bit confusing (don't know if that's true) that there are 2 red lines that don't belong together. The green line that we took seems to be more of a shuttle service to the cruise terminal.

Very interesting. Unfortunately, not all boats have an audio guide.

Very nice and interesting city. Unfortunately, not all sights have a German-language audio guide or offer German-language tours. Knowledge of English is an advantage, as the staff do not speak German either. Boats and buses are very reliable and run at short intervals, so there are hardly any waiting times.
