A bit rain, but it didn't matter, because the scenery was great. Beatiful lazy river, pretty houses and gardens all around, a captain who wanted to give information about the trip and what we saw.

A trip with this oldest peddlesteemer in the World is a trip into another World. A relaxing trip in one of the most beautiful places in Denmark. Enjoy sailing on the Lake and relax while the beautiful Nature passes by.
