Take a cruise on the River Spree

cruise

See the city centre from a different angle.

Berlin has more waterways than Venice, and a boat tour is a great way to see the city. Gardens, modern and historical buildings, monuments, and even shopping streets take on another dimension when seen from the water.

Embark on a riverboat or a steamboat and navigate to the city centre, passing under famous bridges such as the Oberbaumbrücke  and Schlossbrücke, and gliding past monuments like the Bellevue Palace, the Berlin Cathedral, and Museum Island.

The cruise takes you to the Saint-Nicolas district, the oldest part of the city, where you'll see modern architecture like the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and Norman Foster's dome on the renovated Reichstag. You can also explore the hipster scene in East Berlin or cruise on Lake Wannsee and the Havel River to learn more about the history of the region.
