While there was no wind during the time that we went sailing, it was still very a relaxing and fun way to see Hamburg from the lake. The drinks and seating area made it very pleasant to see the sun set on the city skyline

What a wonderful trip this was! There were three of us, and we met some really nice people who had also booked this trip (5 others). Henning was a fabulous sailor and guide. It was a very relaxing sail and I felt like we had all become fast friends by the end of it. I highly recommend it!

What a wonderful way to wind down in Hamburg!

Henning was a fantastic captain and tour guide. His English was great and he provided very interesting information about the city and Lake Alster as he deftly sailed us around the lake. The weather was beautiful and the water was very smooth.

The dock is very near to an excellent area for dining, either before the tour or afterwards. Henning greeted us as we arrived at the dock and showed us where we could freshen up and get a beverage before we embarked. After disembarking, he gave us some great advice for visiting Hamburg, as well as his hometown of Bremen.

It was a lovely evening and a treasured memory of Hamburg.

Really nice sunset cruise! Amazing views of the city. We had a really nice time with Henning and the other people who joined that day. Drink in hand and on a boat is the best way to enjoy Hamburg. I bought the voucher as a bday present and I enjoyed it a lot myself. The perfect present idea, cause you can buy the voucher and then book the cruise to do it whenever you want. I can definitely recommend it! Thanks for such a nice moment!

Moin! Moin! What a great way to see the city! We were booked this gem by our travel agent for a recent trip en route to a wedding. The excursion was well worth the cost. Our guide spoke excellent English, gave a great tour of the sites viewable from the boat and took us around the lake several times. He was very accommodating as the weather was not great the night of the booking and he arranged an afternoon sail the next day in exchange. Drinks were great! Would do it again without reserve.

Great way to relax and see the lake and sunset on a small wooden sailboat. Very peaceful and quiet way to wind down after a busy day in the city. The boat can only hold a dozen people so very intimate.
