Only the "audio guide" was superfluous, since it was only a dialogue played from the tape between the "past" and the "present"... Either no explanations at all or detailed live comments would have been better, especially since the Heidelberg Castle illuminations the night before took place, e.g. B. Something more beautiful about the castle and the old bridge. Otherwise we were satisfied with this short and leisurely tour on the Neckar. Drinks were well chilled, price and range in order.

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 :)
