Experience absolute freedom and flexibility during your stay with this unique offer that shows you Berlin from both land and water.

Your hop-on hop-off buses will travel two routes that have been designed to show you the most impressive and best-known attractions Berlin has to offer. Discover such sights as the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, and Checkpoint Charlie onboard our green double-decker buses. Of course, you’re free to get on and off and even switch between routes as much as you like to explore the city the way you would like to.

Aboard a unique hop-on hop-off boat tour, you’ll get to know Berlin from a whole new perspective as you glide down the Spree River. Experience the capital from the water and see its unique architecture with this one of a kind trip. Just like with the buses, you’re free to get on and off the boats as often as you like.

With your combination tickets, you can freely enjoy the best of both worlds. Switch between boats and buses as much as you please and discover Berlin’s countless sights and attractions the way that suits you best.
