Discover Berlin by boat with just one ticket for 24 or 48 hours. With this convenient hop-on, hop-off ticket you can get on and off the boat as often as you like.

Museum Island, Government Quarter or East Side Gallery: Berlin has many great sights that can be explored from the water during a boat trip on the river Spree. With the hop-on, hop-off ticket you don't have to decide on one particular tour. Simply disembark at a sight that interests you and continue on one of the five lines whenever you feel like it.

And this is how it works: You can buy a voucher from this site. It is valid from the first boarding until 24 or 48 hours later. So if your first trip is on a Friday at 2 p.m., you can travel until Saturday or Sunday at 1.59 p.m. - depending on whether you have booked the 24- or 48-hour ticket.

With a hop-on-hop-off ticket, you can use the following lines for 24 or 48 hours respectively:

Yellow Line: This line travels from Haus der Kulturen der Welt or Hauptbahnhof and up the river Spree through the city centre to the Nikolaiviertel and back again. You will see the government quarter, Museum Island, Berlin Cathedral and many more sights.
Purple Line: The boat navigates the Spree for 1.5 hours, through the city centre of Berlin. The tour starts at Hansabrücke in Moabit and ends at the Yellow Line.
Blue Linie: You can travel up to 3.5 hours, for example from Märkisches Ufer, on the Berlin inner city ring road via the Spree and Landwehrkanal. The canal impresses with its idyllic green banks; it is an oasis of calm in the middle of the city. You will not only see the centre of Berlin but also Neukölln, Potsdamer Platz and Charlottenburg with the Tiergarten.
Red Linie: You cruise along the Spree between East Side Gallery and Haus der Kulturen der Welt. The line includes a locking at Mühlendammschleuse.
Orange Line: From the House of World Cultures, heading north via Charlottenburg to the Westhafen harbour and into industrial Berlin. At the main railway station, the journey heads back to the Spree and towards the city centre where the ship goes to Nikolaiviertel, turns around and sets course again for the Haus der Kulturen at the Chancellery.
