The Henrichenburg ship lift in the evening

What we offer

Boat trips and other activities

From March to October you can take a trip along the canal on the “Henrichenburg” pleasure boat every day. Here you can find further information.
Moreover we offer regular tours on our historic boats.

Every Sundays at 11 o’clock there is a  free guided tour. If you want to combine culture with food and drink you should book one of our evening guided tours which is followed by a meal in a nearby restaurant.

The ship lift has long been recognized as a culture forum for the region, and a venue for talks, music and cabaret evenings.

Major events like the Museum Festival and “Extra Shift: the long night of industrial heritage” are huge attractions with the general public. A particularly popular attraction is the annual Christmas market on the canal bank.

All the current dates are available on the internet at:

If you are travelling with a group we can put together an individual package for you.
