JSMC/Microverse boat trip

All JSMC/Microverse members and friends are invited to join us for a fun JSMC/Microverse summer boat trip on Saturday, July 29th!

We plan to go on a short trip from Jena to Porstendorf with Kayaks (either 1 or 2 persons per boat). The tour is described as "easy/relaxed", covers 9 km and will take about 2 - 3 hrs. You do not need to have prior knowledge regarding paddling or be super sporty, just bring appropriate clothes, sunscreen/sun protection, a change of clothes/towel, drinks and snacks. We will not be in a hurry and have time to wait for everyone!

There will be an instruction in safety and behavioural rules, boat handling and paddling techniques. Additionally to boats, paddles and life jackets, they will provide us with route informations and tips on weirs/locks.

Important: This time you can only join, if you registered with us beforehand! Please find more detailed information below.


  • 9:30 a.m. Meeting at canoe-station in Jena, Am Gries
  • 9:45 a.m. Handing out boats and equipment + start of paddle-tour to Porstendorf
  • ca. 12:00 p.m. Arrival at Porstendorf + returning of boats and equipment
  • 12:36 p.m. or 01:26 p.m. Train back to Jena


The weekend and holiday rate is 32 € per adult. Transport from Porstendorf to Jena via regional train is free for students with Thoska or employees with Deutschland-Ticket.


Please register with us by June 30th. Prior registration and payment is mandatory, since we will need to book the boats and pay them in advance. In case of illness or any other reason why someone can't attend on short notice, you will get a voucher but not a refund.

For your convenience we'll offer different registrations points, where you can register and pay in cash. Please contact us for further details: jsmc-speakers@uni-jena.de
