  • Overview & Itinerary


    Sail along the River Spree and see the famous Berlin attractions with this 1-hour Berlin sightseeing cruise.

    It is an ideal way to enjoy a relaxed cruise in Berlin when you have limited time as it takes you past major Berlin highlights, such as Mühlendammlock, Berlin Cathedral, Museum Island, Seat of the German Government, Government Quarter and the House of World Cultures.

    Either take a break from shopping or simply unwind after a day sightseeing and see the city pass by from the boat.


    To begin your 1-hour Berlin sightseeing cruise, you can either board your cruise from Nikolaiviertel or Friedrichstraße. Set sail for a leisurely cruise along the Spree River as you pass through many Berlin highlights.

    Enjoy your relaxed cruise as your boat takes you across the lock at Mühlendamm. Next, you will see the dome of the Berlin Cathedral, the largest church in the city, dominating the Berlin skyline.

    Sail further along the river Spree, past the Museum Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and then to the Seat of the Government and the Government Quarter.
