Cruising on a Paddle Steamer in Silkeborg, Denmark

Hjejlen One attraction in the world That may sound immodest to call Hjejlen for an attraction of world class. But when Hjejlen is the world's oldest paddle steamer - and not least because the sailing yet - then these are world-class. And we are immensely proud that we in Silkeborg, as the only place in the world, can offer sailing with Hjejlen, built in 1861 in Baumgarten and Burmeister's Ship Building and yet in operation with the original machine. Hjejlen also got in 2015 the prestigious accolade of being appointed to a Historical Monument of Ship Preservation Foundation, which thus believed that Hjejlen is an inalienable part of the Danish cultural heritage. Then wrap smartphone and tablet aside and let peace descend upon you, receptacle while you hear the sound of machine that works while the boat sails quietly away. In other words, take a trip with Hjejlen, immerse yourself in your thoughts while you enjoy the exceptionally beautiful scenery at Silkeborg Lakes Takes you on a trip with Hjejlen, it is like stepping back in time. You can see when stoker throws coal under the boiler, and you can when the engineer lubricate the old machine that quietly working day after day. Life goes on in the same way as they have done for over 150 years. It is quite unique. price: - 150 krone adults per 3 hrs
