Nice quick boat tour of Berlin from the Spree River. The tour is conducted in German so if you don’t speak German you will have to listen to an audio device instead. There are drinks on the boat which is nice if you want to have a beer while you enjoy the tour.

It's always nivea to see city from other perspective. The tour was nice and well organized. There is audio guide which gives you short descriptions of buildings around. Unfortunately, the audio guides are only for foreigners, for German speaking people there is installed speaker on the boat, which is very loud. You can barley hear your own guide and actually this loud speaker is very annoying during the trip.

This is our second time in Berlin and so we already saw and went to the different tourist sites via hopon-hopoff buses. We decided to take this short boat tour to see Berlin from a different view. we have a toddler with us and so we thought the boat tour was a chill&relax option. Unfortunately, it was raining, so we could not enjoy it from the open deck of the boat. None the less, the tour completed smoothly.
