From April to October 2016 there will again be regular excursions on the Oder. With the two ships Zefir and Laguna we go to the Middle Oder. In addition to short excursions of one to three hours to the nearest port, theme tours or events for groups are also offered. At the port of Frankfurt Oder, by a Hotel near the train station is easy to reach, it goes on the Zefir, which runs regularly from Kostrzyn via Frankfurt / Oder and Eisenhüttenstadt to Krosno Odrz in Poland. moves.
From the 30 seats on the open deck you have the best view over the river. Below deck there are another 62 seats in the air-conditioned interior. So even in rainy weather there is nothing to be said against a boat trip on the Oder. From Monday to Friday there are regular trips on the Oder. And guests can also look forward to a tour on the German-Polish border river on public holidays or on the occasion of special events such as the traditional Hanseatic Festival in Frankfurt-Oder. The normal tariff for a one-hour journey or crossing starts at 4 euros per ticket. Family tickets are available for families. There are drinks and typical Polish snacks on board.
The excursion boats are operated by a Polish association and have been sailing across the Oder since 2013. Before that, there were hardly any offers for tourist excursions on the river. That has changed with the two ships of the excursion line. Passengers from Frankfurt-Oder simply board at Holzmarkt and buy their tickets directly on board. And you can also board at the marina in Slubice, Frankfurt's twin town on the Polish side of the Oder. The timetable for 2016 with all departure times is online at www.oder2014.de available.
A trip with the Zefir on the Oder takes you past natural, quiet banks and the expanses of the Oder meadows. In the Brandenburg region near the German-Polish border, it goes through the approximately 60-kilometer-long Oderbruch, an extraordinary landscape. The country of Lubusz on both sides of the border can also be seen from the ship.
who in one Hotel in Frankfurt-Oder is a guest, an excursion boat is not only easy to reach, but the region can be experienced in a very special way from the ship. The Oder also connects Germany and Poland. Therefore, it is wonderfully possible to visit the neighboring country by ship.
