Sails a 15 km long route through lakes and river. At the end of it you can in 15 minutes walk up the hill Himmelbjerget, from which there is a beautiful view over the landscape. You will find a restaurant there as well.

We went on 'Tranen', a well maintained shuttle bus/boat dating from 1931. Tranen offers plenty of seating, mostly inside with panoramic windows but with some outside in front of the wheel house. We had a one hour tour along the river to the lake and...More

A bit rain, but it didn't matter, because the scenery was great. Beatiful lazy river, pretty houses and gardens all around, a captain who wanted to give information about the trip and what we saw.

We had a great walk all around the oldest paddle steamer but unfortunately it only does trips on the weekends after the middle of August and of course we were in Silkeborg from Monday to Wednesday. It's still a great experience to see it.
