5 Great Views You'll Only Get On A Berlin River Cruise

Berlin's ancient heart lies in its river, so any Spree tour is bound to cover the city's historic glory. Of course, you can see the sights by land if you want, but only a Berlin cruise offers these views!

Museum Island

Museum Island

The exhibitions at the Museum Island's five state museums rank among the world's best, but you can get great views of the Prussian architecture from a boat tour.

Oberbaum Bridge

Oberbaum Bridge

The 19th-century double-decker bridge, accommodating pedestrians and drivers, was built to resemble a historic city gate and unites the districts of Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. The view from the water is unmatchable!

Government District

Government District

As well as the Reichstag, the Government District is also home to the best of Berlin's modern architecture. Highlights like the House of World Cultures look even better by night!

Molecule Man

Molecule Man

See one of Berlin's more peculiar public artworks up close. Jonathan Borofsky's iron giants symbolize the intersection of the Treptow, Kreuzberg, and Friedrichshain districts. You can even glide right under the figures on a paddle board tour!

Bellevue Palace

Bellevue Palace

The German President's official residence was built to be seen from the land, but only from the water can you catch the Prussian Siegessäule (Victory Column) in the background and take some tip-top snaps.

Planning Your Visit

What's available?

Berlin river boat trips come in a variety of forms, whether you want to see the city by night or day, or even choose a theme such as a movie tour. You can have lunch or dinner and drinks onboard too, and even extend your tour to take in the city's canals. Why not follow up your river tour with a cruise on one of Berlin's lakes?

How much does it cost?

Tickets aboard the Berlin boats start at around €10, but bear in mind that more expensive tours are likely to be relatively excellent value for a European capital.

What people are saying about Berlin

A nice cruise down the Spree river and covers most of the main attractions in Berlin on the riverside. Drinks were provided for a reasonable price. Staff were friendly and even though I didn’t speak German did their best to help me out. Boat was punctual and arrived back at the drop off point with time to spare. One criticism is they only had commentary available in German which they played on loudspeaker. Maybe a better way would be to give guests individual headphones and give them the option of commentary in different languages, as many other boat services or tour buses do.

I didn’t notice the tour was commentated in German so I spent the first quarter of the trip not understanding what was going on. I then realized you could rent an audio translator which really helped. The tour winds through the city and also some park areas. It was a nice way to see the area. Plus you can enjoy drinks during the voyage. :)

Wonderful your for the family. the staff was friendly, and our English audio guides that were selected at the time of booking were waiting for us, and they worked fine. part of the tour was up and back, and then we made a circle through the city past Charlottenburg Palace. I would definitely recommend!

This was perfect, easy to locate, left on time and an hour was ample amount of time for an evening boat tour. It was such lovely weather so we were able to sit on top. I love the fact that you can bring your own drinks/snacks with you of you can buy on there.

Tolle Schiffsfahrt. Sehr zu empfehlen, auch wenn es zwischenzeitig etwas langatmig war und das sitzen recht unbequem wurde. Danke auch für den Eiswürfel und Zwiebel nachdem ich auf den letzten Metern noch von einer Wespe an Bord gestochen wurde.
