The round trip on the park's waterways takes you past the impressive topiary walkway and under many of the historical bridges. Marie's design was based on original drawings from 1913. But it is no mere copy of the old ships; instead the design takes its cues from the original and adds many improvements. The boat is mainly constructed of larch and has been exquisitely finished with a polished exterior made of mahogany. The round trip starts and ends at Meiereisee lake which is also where the boat house can be found. Stopping four times, the trip passes Emmasee lake and the animal enclosure and takes in the Waldschlösschen before returning to Meierei lake. You can get on and off the boat at each stop. A ticket is valid for one trip. After leaving the boat, a new ticket is required to return on board. The Marie has capacity for 30 people and can be hired for private tours.
