​Conference Tour: Evening Boat Cruise

The Spaces & Flows Conference is pleased to announce the conference tour.

Join your fellow conference delegates for an evening boat cruise on the Neckar River.

A boat tour along the River Neckar is a wonderful way to see Heidelberg’s architecture at a relaxed pace. The illuminated red-sandstone ruins of Heidelberg Castle, a noted example of Renaissance architecture, dominates the skyline as it sits 300 feet (91 meters) above the city. The Karl Theodor Bridge, known more commonly as the Old Bridge, is an iconic pedestrian bridge constructed in 1788 that spans the Neckar River. Set against a backdrop of lush green forests and dramatic hills, the picturesque city of Heidelberg as seen from the river is an experience not to be missed.

Drinks and appetizers will be provided on board.

Following the cruise, we recommend dinner at Heidelberger Kulturbrauerei.
