Berlin has two large rivers - Spree and Havel - as well as lots of lakes and canals where ships and boats cruise. The Spree river flows in arches through the center of Berlin, south of it runs the Landwehr canal. Therefore, all boat tours through the inner city follow the same route over the Spree river and the Landwehr canal, only length and duration of the boat tours vary, depending on start and finish points. This page presents the most popular river cruises, tickets can be bought online.
See spectacular illuminations of famous buildings on a boat trip at the festivals "Berlin leuchtet" and "Festival of Lights" in October.
Please note: The normal timetable for river cruises in Berlin applies from the end of March to the end of October. In the winter months only special cruises (such as Advent and Christmas cruises) can be booked.
