The boat is painfully slow (approximately 6 km/h maximum) and the view is abysmally boring. The only landmarks you'll see are the ones you probably have already seen from land, and the view from the canal is generally more distant and worse. Not to mention...More

Quite boring trip. Very slow and you don’t get to see much of the city’s hot spots. Very cheap though.

Very nice trip. It is very slow trip...but nice to experience. You can see Bydgoszcz from different view. Really cheap trip. Worth to do it with small children

This was really a waste of time. For such a short distance, much of the time staring a brick walls while locks were negotiated, it brought new excitement to watching paint dry.

Nice way to a different views of the city. I didn't buy my ticket in advance, but I would recommend doing so, a number of people were turned away and this was on a Monday.

A very inexpensive trip. A good way to see Bydgoszcz from a different view. An interesting lock system to pass through. A pleasant way to spend an hour

The trip on the water tram provided an interesting view of the city and travelling through the lock was educational. Adults and children all seemed to enjoy the trip. Purchase tickets in board. We started outside the granaries near the bridge. On a sunny day...More

From Tesco in the east I enjoyed a quiet time on the sun-powered water tram to the west well on the other side of the water locks. Make sure you sit on the far back outside to be able to see all around you!
