During our motor boat tours you can enjoy a "Schälchen Heeßen" (a regional dialectal term for hot coffee) and the beautiful river landscape of the Weiße Elster and the Karl-Heine-Canal. On the tour past the Palmengartenwehr, the Buntgarnwerke and the Riverboat you will get to know a different side of Leipzig. Maximum capacity: 20 people.

From Leipzig City Harbour, you can explore Leipzig and its water-rich surroundings in a variety of ways, such as by canoes and bicycles which are avaialble to rent. In addition, there are various guided tours by canoe, dinghy or dragon boat.

Leipzig City Harbour is one of the most popular destinations for residents and tourists. The harbour, with its many recreational activities, is especially attractive during the warmer months. The summery temperatures and typical harbour atmosphere offer a special charm during this time. Excursions by bike along the paths located on the waterways or boat tours on the waters of Leipzig and in the New Lake District - experiences like these are unique in German cities. At a separate beach volleyball facility, you can relieve stress through activity, while the restaurant with a terrace overlooking the water invites you to linger.
