Evening Canal Cruise
The illuminated canals and bridges form a fairytale-like backdrop when seen from the water.
With candlelight and background music, the Evening Canal Cruise by Candlelight is the perfect scene for a romantic evening.
During the Evening Candlelight cruise an abundance of wines, sodas, cheeses and pretzels will be served.
A multilingual guide will tell you about the various attractions. All our Candlelight boats come with a lavatory. When the weather permits, the sliding roof can be opened. Should the weather be somewhat colder, we will simply turn on the heater.
