A wonderful trip with a still original steamer. Beautiful views of the area around the Elbe. The whole trip was accompanied by an on-board pianist who didn't play boring music. Historical knowledge was conveyed in a charming way. We will definitely be going again next year.

Reservation and changing the number of participants was possible without any problems. Check in was relaxed. The trip on the Elbe was very nice and the gastronomic supply was okay.

Beautiful cruise, the scenery was gorgeous. Nice service on board and easy on and off access.

It was a nice tour, but I missed the explanations for individual buildings.

It was a relaxed ride, the team tries very hard, gladly again
