German FRS Will Provide Daily Panoramic Visits On The Tagus River
Scheduled to start on May 15, as the launch of the new FRS line depends on the opening of the dock by the Lisbon Tourism Association, the tourist cruises on the Tagus will guide passengers to the city's landmarks, such as Praça do Comércio, 25 de Abril Bridge, Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) and the Monument of the Discoveries. The sightseeing boat tour also passes by the Belem Lighthouse, Belem Tower, as well as Christ the King.
"We are very excited about our new tours in Lisbon," says Moritz Bruns, Director of Business and Enterprise Development and Managing Director of FRS Portugal Unipessoal, Lda. "The Portuguese capital has a very large tourist potential and is undergoing a huge development with many maritime and tourism projects", Moritz Bruns also considers.
The responsible for the German company also highlights the investment volume of "27 million euros", with which the city of Lisbon, together with the Lisbon Tourism Association, "completely redesigned the seaside promenade in the city center", making reference to the "construction and installation of a new pier and a passenger terminal with a total of eight ticket booths".
For these tours, FRS will place on the Tagus River the motor vessel "Hanseblick" which will be transported from Germany to Portugal. The ship had recently finished its service at Wolfsburg Autostadt. The "Hanseblick" has capacity for 160 passengers and is 37 meters long.
