A slice of Europe with Captain Bretzel

At the helm of your boat, start your river outing in the city's European District. Admire the European Parliament and the European Court of Human Rights with their blue-tinged reflections painting the Ill River. Your outing will take you to the Cité de la Danse et de la Musique and through the Malraux District, the ultimate legacy of 1930s industrial architecture. Built in the centre of an old port, this new district has preserved its historic red-brick architecture with impressive glass buildings bringing a modern touch.

Continue your excursion into the evening and enjoy the sunset with friends. With a drink and a few nibbles, raise your glass for a toast. Romantics can spend a night docked on the river lulled by the rhythm of the water. A unique experience with breakfast as a bonus!

A leisurely cruise with Marin D’eau Douce

Put on your admiral's cap and set off for a picturesque ride on the waters of Strasbourg. For history buffs, steer your boat to the monuments and historic districts of Strasbourg: La Petite France, Vauban Dam, the Ponts Couverts bridges and towers, and magnificent Rohan Palace. With the wind in your hair, discover these must-see sights from a new angle.
For lunch, tie up your boat on the banks of the Ill River for a picnic by the water. Lie in the grass and enjoy the moment while snacking on tapas.
In winter, invite your significant other on a poetic outing. Warm up under a blanket with a lovely mulled wine and admire the Christmas lights reflected on the water.
