Hjejlen is the world’s oldest original coal-fired paddle steamer still in operation. Daily throughout the summer, Hjejlen and the other excursion boats in the Hjejle fleet sail from Silkeborg to Himmelbjerget and on to the small station town of Laven. The sailing time from Silkeborg to Himmelbjerget is 1 hour and 15 minutes. The other excursion boats also sail non-stop one-hour round trips from Silkeborg and Himmelbjerget. Finally, you have the opportunity to experience the beautiful Silkeborg lakes on an evening trip on board Hjejlen or one of the other boats. View timetable on Hjejlen’s website.
