Full description
Let yourself be enchanted and enjoy Potsdam's splendidly staged palace and park landscape. Admire the unique brilliance of the lights, which will illuminate the castles, buildings and churches on the banks of the Havel river this weekend.

Look forward to a glass of sparkling wine as a welcome drink and set sail for a three-hour-long parade. Be taken to the time of Frederick the Great and glide from the Port of Potsdam, past the royal gardens, into the evening sunset to arrive in Sacrow for the first highlight of the evening.

Enjoy the classical brass concert in front of the church Heilandskirche, illuminated by torches, and then admire the majestically illuminated Hohenzollern castles and the dancing elves on the shores of Lake Jungfernsee. Experience the crowning finale with a baroque rain of fire from the Glienicke Bridge, which transforms the Havel into a romantic sea of lights.

Eine informative wunderschöne Fahrt. Super Atmosphäre bei untergehender Sonne und zunehmender Dunkelheit.

Hatte mir mehr darunter vorgestellt

Leider sieht man nicht sehr viel und fährt die meiste Zeit auf dem dunklen Fluss entlang. Der Aufenthalt beim Konzert war ziemliche lange, 2 Runden weniger hätten es auch getan. Dass es wegen der Trockenheit zu keinem Feuerwerk kam, kann den Veranstaltern natürlich nicht angelastet werden.
