Berlin Boat Tours - Weekday vs Weekend

Berlin tends to be fairly crowded on the weekends. Hence, if you wish to enjoy the cruise peacefully, we suggest booking a cruise tour on a weekday. Opt for a tour in the afternoon, just before dusk to enjoy the best views of the city, as it’ll be less crowded during this time. 

If you wish to take a cruise at the weekend, booking your tickets prior is the best way to ensure your spot. There are several options such as sightseeing cruises, city tours, and dinner cruises to choose from. 

Berlin Boat Tours - Best time of the year

Berlin's peak season starts in late spring and continues till early autumn because of the favourable weather and duration of the day. Temperatures typically range from 19°C to 23°C during this time, hence these months are the busiest travel months. The sun's rays during this time make the city glow beautifully. 

Berlin's winters are often grey and gloomy, with brief days and cold rains. This is considered as off-season and the stay, and airfare prices drop down at this time. 

Berlin Boat Tours - Evening and night

Evening and night

Enjoying the sunset from the cruise is one of the best experiences, as the buildings and the river will be covered in orange hues of setting sun rays. As the sun sets, the city begins to glow and glitter covered in lights. This is also one of the best times to take a boat tour through Spree. Besides, the first and last boat cruises of the day are generally less crowded. Hence, with night cruises, you can enjoy the sights like never before in peace.

How Long Do You Need To Go On A Berlin Boat Tour?

There are several Berlin Boat Tour options with different time durations that you can choose from. The total duration of the cruise varies based on the option you choose. Typically, you may need 1 to 2.5 hours to explore the river views of Berlin.
