Each family is allowed 4 boats, so prices are regulated. These guided canal trips let you see the hidden corners of the city at water level. The rides last about 40 minutes and...

On weekends the trams run an hour later at night and tie into the night buses which a couple run until 3:30. I thought it was interesting that while some trams run along major streets where there is plenty of...

This also includes a 10 minutes stop at the Minnenwater where the horse has a water stop. I also read that it is hard to hear the guide speak due to the noise of the horse and carriage on the cobbled streets. However if you would like...
