The booking worked wonderfully. However, initially I could not see the booking in the APP. After a short phone call, help was quickly provided. The boat trip is a normal trip with the Elbe Schifffahrt, from Pirna to Bad Schandau and back. The ship was very clean and had great service. Gladly again. Note: The ticket was not immediately recognized on site by the service center on the cell phone, so be sure to take the printed version with you.
