Enjoying cold beverages, in the sun, while cruising on the Spree past Berlin, with a great crew, assisting the experience. They passed umbrellas around for passengers shy of the sun and served beer, wine, and soft drinks at reasonable prices. The crew were friendly and...More

This is the only boat tour offered with the Berlin Pass and only certain of the trips are available using the Berlin Pass. We found that the English language "tour" was nowhere near as comprehensive as the German language "tour" and that is inexcusable. It...More

The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
