A Spreefahrt offers a leisurely boat tour along the Spree River, providing a unique vantage point of Berlin’s landmarks. Glide past historic and modern sites, relaxing under the sky as the city’s history unfolds around you. Fun tidbit: the Spree River is sometimes referred to as Berlin’s “lifeline,” having played a crucial role in the city’s development over centuries.

Landwehrkanal

Fun fact: the canal was built in the mid-19th century to help regulate the city’s water levels and remains a picturesque part of Berlin’s urban landscape.

Fun fact: Wannsee is also home to the infamous 1942 Wannsee Conference, where Nazi officials planned the logistics of the Holocaust. Today, it’s a place of leisure and reflection.
