I took the 50-minute boat ride through Heidelberg. It was almost empty, only a few people. The boat makes many stops along the river so more people can get in but it is a nice ride. The price is quite low, only 9 euros, so...More

We took the 3-hour tour until Neckarsteinach and enjoyed it. It was a quiet day at the end of October, so the boat was almost empty and we could sit, relax and enjoy the wonderful views.
