Guided City Tour: Festival of Lights
- Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral, Potsdamer Platz, Museum Island, Gendarmenmarkt, and more
- 4 hours
During the Light Festival in October, numerous buildings and landmarks in Berlin are illuminated. On a boat tour with the illuminated solar catamaran, you can be the shining highlight on the Spree and discover the sights of Berlin's city centre in a special atmosphere.
You start at the landing stage of the Solarwaterwold near the famous East Side Gallery. Take a seat on the emission-free and modern solar ship and enjoy the next three hours on board. After setting off, the ship will pass the impressive Oberbaumbrücke bridge, only to pass the East Side Gallery a little later. Before you see Berlin-Mitte shining in its most beautiful facets, experience the lock through the Mühlendamm lock. Afterwards, the sights are lined up close together. While the solar boat travels westwards, you will see the Nikolai Quarter, the Humboldt Forum, the Berlin Cathedral and the Museum Island with the Bode Museum located directly on the waterfront. Only a few minutes later you will dive into the beautifully government quarter with the chancellery. Turning point of the ship is the House of World Cultures, which all Berliners call only pregnant oyster. Here the ship turns around and returns to its starting point - you will have enough time again to view all the sights. Due to the solar propulsion the ship moves almost silently across the Spree, so that no disturbing engine noises will affect your experience. The solar catamaran is barrier-free and is heated.
The online ticket will be sent directly after booking via e-mail and can also be shown on the smartphone (a printout is not required).
