Berlin: everything all at once
Having freed itself from the shackles of history, Berlin has fast built a reputation of a trendy, fun-loving city. From the elegant Museum Island, Checkpoint Charlie and the Brandenburg Gate to the hipster bars of the Neukölln neighbourhood, Berlin is a melting pot of cultures. The Potsdamer Platz showcases Berlin's history, and the nearby Tiergarten Park is one of Germany’s biggest stretches of parkland, but that’s not all. There’s also Berlin’s beautiful Cathedral Church, the TV Tower, and a host of shopping opportunities, from the fashion boutiques in Mitte to the upmarket shops of Friedrichstrasse. But another side of Berlin can only be seen from the water.
Discover Berlin from a new perspective
With jetties at Schlossbrücke, Friedrichstrasse, the House of World Cultures and over 80 more points, the Stern-und Kreisschiffahrt offers some of the best sightseeing to be had in Berlin. Visitors choose from 30 tours which show off the highlights of Berlin’s many facets. The ‘Historical City’ tour takes guests past 60 sites in 60 minutes, including the Cathedral, Museum Island, the TV Tower, the Reichstag and the government district. But longer trips include further sites including Charlottenburg Palace and the Hamburger Bahnhof.
