A very large and modern inland vessel that mainly operates on the major rivers, i.e. the Rhine, Main, Waal, Meuse and Scheldt. Passengers book a travel period of about 3-4 weeks, during which the 7-10 day trip will take place. The embarkation and disembarkation usually take place in Kehl, Karlsruhe, Mannheim, Mainz or similar, although the vessel does not always return to the point of departure (for example, the embarkation may be in Mannheim and the disembarkation in Karlsruhe). The vessel is usually in one of these ports every 8-10 days. Due to its size, the vessel can only moor in certain places. We therefore do not offer a fixed embarkation date, embarkation and disembarkation can only take place if the vessel is in one of the ports mentioned. A few days before the start of the journey, the captain informs the passengers of the exact dates and locations. 3 meals as well as coffee and tea are included in the price, bed linen and towels are provided. The vessel mainly carries coal and containers. The experienced Dutch couple of inland bargemen are happy to take passengers with them to show them the life of an inland bargeman. There are 2-3 other crew members on board. Car transport usually possible (€ 50.00, at your own risk). Bicycle transport free of charge. Languages on board German, Dutch, English.
