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

    1. 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

    2. 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

    3. 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

    4. 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

    5. 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.

Overall we really enjoyed this cruise! The boat had the most comfortable seats, luxury compared to the other cruises that went past us. The audioguide in German and English was of high quality and staff were friendly. Hot drinks, beers and pretzels could be ordered on board with table service.

Excellent boat, excellent commentary, super staff! The fact that the boat was on many levels, meant that you could be in sun or shade and the service remained superb.

Went with a group of my friends for a birthday and we found it very awesome. It also showed the beautiful parts of the city.

Nice trip It was beautiful summer day, really nice walk. No informative, but just for enjoying.

Das Personal war super! Fahrt war schön, auch für Urberliner. Definitiv weiterzuempfehlen!
