The possibilities of the rivers, lakes and canals of Berlin are endless, from deserted beaches surrounded by nature to old industrial ruins decorated with street art and urban harbours right in the heart of Kreuzberg. From the water you’ll be given a new and fascinating glimpse of the city, and we’re here to help you plan your perfect tour with our boats.
There are a couple of things you need to consider, namely how much time you have and the capacity of the batteries on board the Wasserkutsche houseboats. If you drive with full power, you will need a recharge after two hours on the water. If you are happy with a more moderate speed, you can be out for eight hours and if you are really chilled you can push this to whopping twelve hours before you need to load up again.
We can help you choose the ideal destination for your tour and give precise information about how long it will take and the speed you should travel. We can also tell you where there are jetties with recharging possibilities along the way, all marked on the waterways map that we will give you.
Our normal schedule works as follows: Come to our pier close to Oberbaum Bridge at around 10am where you will get your detailed briefing about the houseboat. You can then either return the boat by 7pm, or on one of the following days at the same time. The longer the period you book, the cheaper each day becomes on average.
