Before we took Passat we took the dingy up about half way to see what it was like. I was comfortable with the depth, Sandra not so much.
The trip up in Passat was uneventful although we did plow mud for a short time just before reaching the lock. A highlight of the trip was a chateau looking down on us from the high bank. Above the lock we were met by the harbormaster, who led us to our berth in his launch.
A beautiful, quiet setting on the river, next to a delightful village. Now one of my favorite spots in Europe.
