Spree River Cruise (1,5 hours)

Berlin Spree River Cruise

A river cruise on the Spree is a great experience! The Spree River Cruise starts at Charlottenburg Palace and takes you all the way to the western and the eastern part of the city center. The boat passes Bellevue Palace, the seat of the president (Germany´s official head of state), makes its way through the Government Quarter to cross the former border that divided Berlin and then continues to Museum Island and Nicholas Quarter. Near Berlin´s historical port the boat goes through a small lock before the tour ends in walking distance from the TV Tower.

Tour Description

Going one way from the West to the East through the entire city center! The start of the Spree River Cruise is at Charlottenburg Palace with its beautiful park in the Baroque Style – it ends at Jannowitzbrücke, a pier that was already used way back in the times of royal rulers. As you pass the sights of Berlin, they will acquire a fascinating appeal as you see them from the boat´s perspective. The dimensions of the Chancellery and the entire Government Quarter can only be perceived from the water. And yes, Museum Island is indeed an island! You will see the future Humboldt Forum´s enormous construction site where Berlin´s city palace used to stand, and the historical port where in the Middle Ages Berlin was founded at the Spree riverside.

During the Spree River Cruise you will see:

  • Charlottenburg Palace – the residence of the Prussian queen Sophie Charlotte
  • Bellevue Palace – seat of the German President
  • Residential buildings for government workers with a striking, snake-like view
  • the House of the World´s Cultures – a cultural venue, nicknamed “Pregnant Oyster” due to its appearance
  • the Chancellery – the office buildings, the park and the Chancellor´s helipad
  • Berlin´s Central Railway Station – Europe´s largest railway station with intersecting lines
  • the German Parliament with the Reichstag´s widely visible glass dome
  • “Palace of Tears” – former border crossing point at train station Friedrichstraße
