For carbon-neutral sailing, you can’t beat this glass-topped boat, powered by 12-tonne batteries juiced up by 56 sq m of solar panels. It was extended by 12m – yes, chopped in half and lengthened – in 2010. The engine is silent – all you hear during a 50-minute excursion is the water and the distant sounds of the city. Docks just west of the Alte Brücke.
