We wanted to have a boat ride around the lake beneath the castle. We knew that a pilot would drive the boat, and that the passenger would enjoy the view. We also knew, therefore, that the boat would be little bigger than a row- or speed-boat. So, after I spoke in German to a Polish staff member at the main gate to book the boat trip, the boat trip nearly didn't happen. Instead, she booked us on a tour of the castle, which we'd already had. I had smelled a rat when she'd told us we'd be collected from Reception instead of at the main gate. Luckily, not too much time was wasted before I found out we'd been booked on the wrong tour. The staff member had misunderstood me. I had used the German word 'Boot' for 'boat', but the staff member only knew the word 'Schiff' (ship) and assumed we must have wanted the castle tour!! Sorry, but the vessels you see in the picture below are definitely not ships.
After the voyage on the lake, Renate and I circled the castle at ground level.
