- Completely overcrowded - many tables reserved in advance and therefore no tables and hardly any chairs available for other guests on the upper deck - Long waiting times for drinks

Enjoy Berlin’s best sightseeing cruise that showcases the best sights in and around the city from your ship on the River Spree. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and have a relaxing time on the waters, since this cruise lasts for 2.5 hours. Discover the many attractions that line the east side of the river and get a different perspective on them from your aquatic vantage point.

Taking place more than twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, this tour traces parts of the border between the two sides on the Spree. You can witness the rapid changes that have taken place on the eastern side of the city after the wall was taken down, and learn more about the wall and life under Soviet occupation.

Catch some unique sights on the cruise and see many of the iconic landmarks of Berlin, such as the Berliner Dom, Fernsehturm, Nikolaiviertel, Marstall, Mühlendammschleuse, Radialsystem V, Energieforum, East-Side-Gallery, Mercedes-Benz Arena, Oberbaumbrücke, Osthafen, Universal, nhow-Hotel, Coca-Cola-Headquarters, MTV, Label 1 and 2, Badeschiff of the Arena Treptow, Molekule Man, Museum Island with the Old National Gallery and Bodemuseum, Monbijoupark, Schiffbauerdamm, Palace of Tears, Parliament and Government District, Central Station, House of World Cultures, countless bridges and many beach bars.

Our fleet of premium sightseeing vessels ensures that you have the best possible views with spacious outdoor decks and vast viewing windows.
