Full description

Discover central Berlin by twilight on a boat cruise along its major waterway, the River Spree. Hop aboard, sit back, relax, and see the main sights of the city from the calm waters in the evening light, feeling the pulse of the bustling city. Start your cruise by Friedrichstraße and pass the Federal Chancellery with its floor-to-ceiling glass walls and modern architecture. Make your way to the pristine white building and manicured garden of Bellevue Palace, overlooking the Victory Column and surrounded by the leafy Tiergarten park.

See the Berlin Central Station with its green glass structure and the Interior Ministry in Moabit before continuing to the iconic and rococo Charlottenburg Palace. Once a royal summer residence, the palace today is Berlin's largest and most magnificent one. Then, cruise past Westhafen Canal, the Berlin-Spandau Ship Canal, the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs, and Hamburger Bahnhof. Finally, head back to Friedrichstraße, where your tour ends.

The boat ride is 2 hours. The first hour is actually quite lovely, seeing all the national landmarks in daylight. The second hour gets quite chilly on the upper deck and it's too dark to see the lesser known sites, as described in the audio guide. The narrative is mostly about the many bridges the boat goes under. The audio guide took awhile to figure how to use, however it did provide some interesting facts. The audio guide is pre-recorded, so there is no opportunity for questions onboard. Perhaps the crew can make some opening remarks on how to set up the audio guide. The crew only repeatedly came around to take food/beverage orders. Overall, it was decent low impact sightseeing. The Spree is very calming.

Beautiful fajrt through the center of Berlin, past the most important sights. The weather was ideal, evening sun and 23 degrees. From the water you have a different view of Berlin and you can also see the many changes in recent years and how much water Berlin has. The crew was very friendly, lots of explanations about the sights and the many bridges. I highly recommend the ride, especially the evening tour around the sunset. Buying tickets ahead of time is recommended.

Useful cruise to see Berlin from a different point of view. You get to the old port, a place that would otherwise be difficult to visit. Breathtaking views of ancient industrial buildings and modern residences in an eclectic style that only Berlin can offer, always immersed in the greenery of the many parks that overlook the Spree in the city.
