As I am 84 years old and not coping well with the heat, the captain and deck attendant offered me to sit in the temperate helmsman's cabin and the captain kindly explained to me everything we saw, mixed with his nice Berlin humor. Both men were extremely kind to my daughter and I, thank you very much.

We had booked a trip, unfortunately there were only allocated seats, that means I couldn't have sat with my children and none of the guests wanted to switch places, so the people from the boat said we could go an hour later and they reserved us seats, they also helped us with the stroller. The gentlemen were so nice and the journey was relaxed and beautiful. I can really recommend it

As described, a 1-hour cruise on the Spree with useful information about Berlin. You could order ice cream or a drink. Buying tickets online went smoothly and on site too. Proof of vaccination had to be shown or a negative test, but this was not noticeable on board when people were crawling so close. That was the only annoying thing. The staff was super nice and friendly.
