  Cruising the brown Danube. It is not dirty at all!

From 15 May to 30 September there are daily tours at 2pm and 3pm, on Sat, Sun and public holidays also at 4pm. From Easter to 15 May they offer tours on weekends (Sat/Sun 2pm and 3pm) only.

A tour takes about 50 minutes.

Cost is 7.50 Euro for adults, 4.50 Euro for children up to 14 years.

An Ulm special are the tours on solar-powered boats.

They take about 1 hour and departure times are approximate only, as they depend on the river flow and wind. You can also choose to go from one to the next stop only. Those stops are Metzgerturm, Adlerbastei (past Herdbrücke towards Friedrichsau), Barfüßer in Neu-Ulm and Friedrichsau (near the football ground). A roundtrip costs 4.50 Euro.

Departures (May to Sept) are only on Sat, Sun and public holidays, between 2.30pm and 5.30pm.

The boat can also be chartered for 70 Euro for the first and 60 Euro for the following hours.

A solar ferry operates between Edwin-Scharff-Haus in Neu-Ulm and the Ulm side (Wilhelmshöhe). This is near Fischerviertel. Single trip 1 Euro, return 1.50 Euro.
