What to expect

Take the opportunity to combine the City Circle hop-on, hop-off tours with a Berlin river cruise along the Spree. Exit the tour bus at stop number 10/DomAquarée and head to the Nikolaiviertel dock. During the 1-hour boat tour, you will have the opportunity to experience Berlin’s most significant landmarks and monuments from the water. After enjoying your boat ride you can hop back on the bus and continue your City Circle Tour.

Use the buses also as convenient transportation. While comfortably seating in one of the yellow or purple double-deckers, you'll have the opportunity to both learn more about Berlin’s exciting history and take in the views of the city with leisure. Sightseeing Berlin is made easy thanks to two different routes. Whether you have a well-structured vacation itinerary or take the day as it comes, the hop-on, hop-off buses are flexible, letting you enter and exit the tour at 30 different locations around the city and make optimal use of your time in the city, as you quickly reach all must-see highlights such as the East Side Gallery, the Museum Island, the Reichstag or Alexanderplatz.

The audio guides on the bus are available in English, German, Arabic, Chinese, Danish, French, Hindi, Indonesian, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian.

The commentaries on the river cruise are available in English and German.
