Join us in June for a canoe tour through Esslingen’s canals, where we will gain a new perspective and learn interesting facts about this old imperial city.
Up to 20 people* will cruise comfortably through the beautiful city in two canoes joined together – paddling is required, but nothing strenuous. The trained host on board is not only the helmsman but also our guide, full of stories and anecdotes. (*changed to maximum 10)
We will meet at 13:00 at the boat launch (behind the IHK building) for instructions and paperwork and the entire event will last approximately two and one half hours.
