Full description
Discover Berlin from the water and enjoy an interesting tour along the beautiful River Spree to Charlottenburg.

Start the 1.5-hour sightseeing tour from Treptow Harbor. Passing by the Fraunhofer Institute and the Spreebogen, see the newly built Ministry of the Interior in the heart of Moabit, the old Bolle dairy farm, and the Reichstag building.

Cruise through the government district and pass the House of World Cultures to reach the Luther Bridge with views of Bellevue Palace, the Beamtenschlange (civil servant accommodation), and the Victory Column.

great 2h trip

Great trip. It took 2h for us (we waited ~20 min at Mühlendammschleuse). It passes through all major attractions. We chose this trip since it is not returning to the starting point. Food and drinks were served (a bit slow, though). The weather was amazing, and the Boat was not crowded.

The boat leaves from Treptower Park so you get a better experience of the Spree than if you board somewhere close to Alexanderplatz. The boat was great and seats were comfortable, staff was very friendly. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 as the speakers with the commentary has a pretty low sound so you struggle to hear. I was surprised to see that people were allowed to smoke on the boat and that took a lot away from the experience. However, I would absolutely recommend this option.

Highly recommend this delightful relaxing river cruise!!

We highly recommend this delightful and relaxing 1.5 hr. river cruise down the Spree, travelling from the east side all the way to the west. Retractable upper awning allows for passage under more Bridges than other boats. Food and drink available on board. Information given in both English and German during the cruise. Friendly staff. Plenty of seating options.
