The 24-hour tram ticket allows one to take the river cruise which also goes out into the lake for some distance and offers an interesting view of the city.

The starts near old town this a beautiful lake we when for a short walk at the top of the lake through a park. Then we took a train in the wrong direction and ended up traveling along the lake. What a nice mistake.

It was nice and the price fair. Could be better if they explain what we are seeing. Otherwise, recommended.

Basic European lake, moderately clean, enjoyable cool breeze. Did not do boat ride but many water taxis available. I would just do a commuter ride and you will see plenty.
