Operation:

  • Due to wintertime most of the regular city and area tours run from March to about November/December
  • Still there are some Dinershow boats running

Tickets & Tips

  • The most popular tour in Berlin is the 1h city centre tour which i can’t recommend, as they do two times the same way up and down the river (about 12€)
  • Do the 3 hour bridge ride which is doing a loop through many areas of the city – it also passes everything that the 1h tours do (about 25€)
  • There are some full day tours with direction Köpenick area and Wannsee/Potsdam area. They are totally worth it if you know downtown Berlin already and want to explore the green outer areas of the city
