Potsdam is also worth seeing from the water side. It's a relaxed tour, well commented. The ship is big and comfortable. You can order food and drinks at the seat. I can recommend the tour. The QR code on our booking was not recognized when boarding, but the staff let us on board as a gesture of goodwill.

We thought the castle tour was great. Unfortunately we had rain, but there were plenty of seats inside. The service on board was very friendly, the drinks ordered were served quickly. The same goes for the food. The hygiene regulations were well implemented and observed. The explanations of the sights were very extensive and very interesting. 90 minutes flew by.

It is a beautiful round trip on the Havel from Potsdam to Jungfernsee and back. The historic castles and mansions standing near the shore are impressive. The surrounding parks are also beautiful to look at. Unfortunately, it rained during the boat tour, so we had to spend most of the time inside the ship.
