A cruise along the Spree

Berlin truly is an amazing city. It has so much history. There is so much to see and so much to do. And the River Spree flows right through the city; East and West. So, why not see the sites in style? Here is some of what you can discover by boat on the Spree.

East Side Gallery

A boat tour along the spree will help you see this wonderfully painted remainder of the Berlin Wall while missing the crowds.


You can pass under this wonderful bridge from the water, and enjoy its fine architecture, as well as riverside views of the lush Tiergarten.

Schloss Bellevue

Located in the Tiergarten, this palace has been the residence of the president of Germany since 1994. If you can see the presidential flag flying then you know the president is in residence.

Berliner Dom

One of the most extravagant buildings in the city, the Berlin Cathedral is definitely one to tick off the sightseeing list.

Museum Island

The Museum Island is a world heritage site and home to 5 of the top museums in Berlin. From the Spree you can see these magnificant buildings in all their glory!

What People Are Saying About Spree River

See parts of Berlin from a different perspective

Who doesn't enjoy a river trip? Who enjoys a serene journey through a city that presents an eclectic mosaic of historical and modern architecture? This 1 hour break away from the hustle and bustle works whatever the weather. However, in October, it can be a bit bracing for some but the best photographic opportunities are up on deck although there is the obvious attraction of a warmer environment down below. The boat was clean, comfortable and the accompanying snack and cordial most welcome. The trip commentary was given in both German and English. I think if I come again, it would be in the warmer months but the trees were displaying some autumn finery and made for a colourful backdrop to this colourful city. If I had one piece of advice it would be that ifyour hotel cannot print out the required voucher, there should be an acceptable alternate to the boat company who on this occasion were more than helpful to make sure I was able to get on board. A trip worth taking. Well done.

Berlin Sights and Highlights: 3.5-Hour Bike Tour Reviewed by Brenda, 10/03/2016

Wonderful, we had a table by window with a reserved table.

Food was excellent and the lights were beautiful. Not sure if we had such a wonderful seat because we booked early and paid, but it was well worth it. Highly recommend this dinner cruise.
