It’s ten in the morning in Berlin. The sun is shining and the weather is warm. There’s only one thing to do on this kind of day – go outside! But, today you don’t really feel like walking or cycling. You’d prefer to go out boating. Luckily, you live in the capital with countless lakes and where the Spree and Havel rivers flow. No matter which district of Berlin you live in, you will find water nearby. Whether you would like to relax on a boat or a stand-up paddleboard, Berlin has a lot to offer. The seven easy routes in this Collection will take you to the best spots in Berlin where you can set sail and enjoy the freedom of being on the water.

On the Müggelspree, you will find a Mediterranean flair as you float down the small canals of New Venice. On a trip to Kleiner Müggelsee, you can tuck into freshly smoked fish which you caught yourself. In the north of Berlin, Tegeler See has a Caribbean vibe as you tether your boat on white sandy beaches. In the southwest, you can explore Wannsee Island, a classic escape for Berliners. At Schlachtensee, you can take to the water on your paddleboard and enjoy Hawaiian flare.

If you would like to captain an adventure raft or tuck into a barbecue aboard your boat then the areas around Grünau and Richtershorn are for you. Or, for a sight-seeing tour from the water, you can hire a pedal boat from Rummelsburger Bucht and head towards the Molecule Man statue. If a romantic rowing boat around a water fountain is your idea of boating fun, then head to Weissensee.

So grab your swimsuit and sunscreen and be your very own captain!

Top tip: So that your trip doesn't capsize into the water, check out boat rental opening hours in advance.

In times of Corona, our tour suggestions are mainly one thing: inspirations for hikes and bike tours in the near future, when the everyday restrictions are less strict. Please stay healthy, protect yourself and other people. Avoid any unnecessary travel — if the urgent desire for fresh air lures you out on our tours, please observe the distance and hygiene rules. By the way, FFP2 masks are mandatory in the Berlin S-Bahn!
