IFR 058
Inland voyage

Route

Varies and depends on the cargo. Fixed routes or travel areas cannot be booked! Passengers book a travel period, the point of embarkation is announced shortly before the start of the voyage, and the point of disembarkation is usually determined during the voyage. The vessel operates on all major rivers and canals in Europe, but mainly between the Elbe and the ports at the mouth of the Rhine. Often the vessel also operates on connecting canals such as the Mittelland Canal or Dortmund-Ems Canal. But also the Netherlands, Belgium or France can be the destination or starting point of the voyage.

Duration

7 or 14 days, usually on Saturdays

Departures

Weekly

Comments

Our passengers are full of praise for the cordiality and the cooking skills of the owner couple. Inland navigation close up in always very interesting shipping areas. One quickly identifies with the vessel, the crew and the owner couple. Bicycle transport possible. Mainly bulk materials such as animal feed, grain, rapeseed meal, but also sheet steel or wire rolls are transported. Car transport is not possible. We recommend traveling by train, as the points of embarkation and disembarkation vary. Meals and drinks like coffee, tea, water are included in the price. If you want, you can also help a little in the daily on-board operations but of course it is not expected. Only a few weeks are left for 2020. Please ask for available dates for 2021.

Shore leave

Depending on the cargo, longer loading or unloading times may also be necessary. In the evenings the ship is moored or anchored. Shore leave is therefore possible almost daily
