Sail along the River Spree that weaves through Berlin’s historic center on a one-hour boat cruise. Enjoy the breath-taking views of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the Reichstag and the Museum Island from the water.


The river cruise departs from the following 2 piers:

  • Friedrichstraße, next to the Weidendammer Bridge.

Take a seat either inside or outside and marvel at the impressive riverfront edifices like the enormous Reichstag building, the various elegant institutions on Museum Island and Fernsehturm, the legendary Television Tower located in Alexanderplatz.

While you sail down the river, listen to the interesting pre-recorded commentary in English and learn about the history of Berlin and its main sights.
