We were on the boat on a 35 degree day. So upper deck was good for a short time only. Wear a hat or bring an umbrella. Would've been excellent if they had these complementary on the boat. A long cruise. Can see passengers worn down from heat ? Great way to see the amazing sights and architecture of magnificent Berlin. Also, the working wharves and other boroughs. Not really recommended for families with teens, children. Too long for them. Hard to hear audio piece provided outside as the German announcements very loud. Better inside.

We caught the boat. I picked this cruise because the one hour one was not offered. It was so relaxing that both my husband and I took brief naps. The cruise had a zen quality and a nice overview of Berlin’s river areas. The inside area seemed like the air was not working, so my husband left me for the upper deck.

A relaxed informative cruise with deck and inside seating, A bar serving drinks & snacks is available during the cruise. An easy to use multi lingual audio handset in is available on board if you can't understand the spoken German commentary on the boat speakers. Each handset has a speaker but ideally you'll need some 3.5mm jack headphones.
