Our tips for Cruises

  • Save those pennies. Depending on what you’re after, Berlin canal cruises vary in cost, and if you book in advance, can be quite cheap. If you fancy a more personal canal experience, combining your boat tour with a Hop-ON Hop-Off bus may be a good option money-wise, especially if you’re sharing costs with a few friends.
  • Snap insta-worthy shots. Don’t forget to bring your best camera to take amazing pictures of the UNESCO-listed Prussian buildings and other best-known sights.
  • Dress accordingly. The cruise offers a unique vantage point to explore the city but make sure that you are dressed accordingly as it can take around 3 hours and may also include a walking tour. Wear comfortable shoes and carry some light layers as well.
