Why Berlin?

A city that shaped the lives of men like Albert Einstein, Karl Marx and David Bowie, where history stares down at the unsuspecting visitor from every nook and corner, Berlin is a popular destination. View the remnants of the Berlin Wall and then visit Checkpoint Charlie, another grim reminder of the Cold War. Germany's tallest structure, the Television Tower, offers unrivalled views of the city's landmarks. The city is home to everything from historic beer gardens to smoky basement clubs, saucy cabaret acts and soul stirring opera. A whopping 440+ galleries and the UNESCO designated Museum Island will require a day set aside.

On the river

The mysteries of Berlin's secret waterways can be explored with a Reederei Riedel boat tour. The Spree River Cruise sails past Berlin's iconic architectural wonders, while the 3-hour Bridges Tour meanders through stunning urban landscapes, river banks and the elevated railway. The route also features legendary Berlin neighbourhoods such as Mitte,Tiergarten, Schöneberg, Kreuzberg and Neukölln. Berlin boasts more bridges than Venice. Reederei Riedel boats move at a comfortable speed ensuring visitors take in the passing sights at leisure. Snacks and drinks can be purchased on board and English speakers can avail of the English audio guides at an extra cost.
