The paddle steamer Hjejlen
Come and experience scenic Silkeborg from the water, on the historic steamer Hjejlen. It's an experience for the whole family, and will take you back in time.
Memories in sight
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 trip from Silkeborg to Himmelbjerget takes 1 hour and 15 minutes. Finally, you have the opportunity to experience the scenic Silkeborg lakes on an evening trip on board Hjejlen or one of the other boats.
