I'm from Berlin and I make the trip every year to ring in the summer. It's one of the most beautiful boat trips in Berlin and Brandenburg, as you travel through nature and pass numerous cultural monuments. You also have the option of getting off at various piers and getting back on a later boat. For example, if you start from Wannsee, you can stop in Potsdam for almost 3 hours and explore the city. Unfortunately, the trip has become a bit expensive over the years, but it's still worth recommending.

Everything was perfect. Booking, process, time. The stories were very interesting. Everything went smoothly.

If I had known that bringing your own drinks and food was allowed, it would have been even more perfect;)

Great. Just a leisurely way to explore the area around Berlin on the water. I would do it again.

Waiter is friendly. Ship is round ship, view is good.
