A Lovely, Relaxing Way to End the Day Enjoying Hamburg
Jul 2021
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.

Lovely sunset experience in Hamburg
Aug 2020
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!

Wonderful views and conversation on a gentle sail
Jun 2019 • Couples
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.

Peaceful Sailing

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.

Great experience

You can tell that sailing in Henning's passion which made the whole trip an unforgettable experience. We were a group of ten and for a stag party in Hamburg. You can bring your own drinks and Henning has a speaker on the boat for music if needed. I highly recommend this trip.

Magical
Henning is a laid-back and kind host who clearly enjoys sharing “his” Alster with others. The serene sunset cruise was the perfect welcome to the vibrant city of Hamburg.

Lovely sunset fun
A relaxing and beautiful way to enjoy Hamburg. Peaceful and nice way to meet people.

While there wasn’t much wind, the captain showed us all of Alster Lake as we enjoyed drinks.

This isn’t a tour, don’t expect much narration or sight seeing

Definitely recommended. The cafe on the dock is also very nice place to relax

Just a great experence - Großartig
Hennig is just a relaxed and very cool guide - you will feel great with him on the water, even if you have just little or no sailing experience.
Mit Henning auf der Alster = Hamburg pur und unverfälscht. Echt cool auch für Leute ohne Segelerfahrung.
