Not just for tourists
It´s easy to sometimes to think of boat trips as being just for tourists but seeing Berlin by boat really offers up a new experience and way of looking at and admiring the city.
For starters it´s hard to ignore the fact that Berlin has many waterways running through it. Canals, rivers and lakes all provide lots of opportunities to have fun on the water.
Scheduled and regular boat trips in Berlin run from March through to October.
If you are new to the city or have limited time the city centre boat trips, which take in all the major sights of historical significance, are perfect to while away an hour particularly when the sun is shining.
If you want to make more of a day off it, on the East Side Tour you´ll see the East Side Gallery from a unique perspective on the Spree along with the Molecule Man or alternatively head for Wannsee and take the popular Seven Lake cruise. Enjoy two hours on the idyllic Havelseen lakes, over Kleinen Wannsee, Pohlesee, Stölpchensee, Griebnitzsee, Glienicker Lake, Jungfernsee and along the Havel back to Wannsee.
If you live in Berlin and have friends visiting you why not suggest a boat tour and even join them?
