What You'll Do
  • Learn about Berlin's exciting and varied history
  • Explore Berlin and get some great exercise along the way
  • Cross a historic water lock between the canal and the Spree River
Experience Berlin from a kayak. See Zoologischer Garten from the water and learn about the capital's impressive water lock system. Explore the length of the U1 line, suspended above the canal, then go for a trip on the Spree.
What to Expect
Set off on an exciting, unique kayak trip. The tour begins or ends in the Berlin Kreuzberg district at the docks of the van Loon boat restaurant.

For the trip you'll have an expert on hand to greet you before the tour beings. The guide will then help you to deploy. While you warm up for the trip, you will have the opportunity to learn a little about the interesting history of the Landwehr Canal.

The journey heads westward downstream along the legendary railway line of the U1. The first train line to be built in Berlin runs above your head up until the point where, above and below the ground, a number of different traffic routes cross paths. A reminder of the so called "Rosinenbomber" (Raisin Bombers) from the Berlin blockade of 1948/1949 can be found on the roof of the German Museum of Technology.

Continue by following this unique, scenic route next to the Spree, past Potsdamer Platz and the Ministry of Defence. Learn about the poignant history of the area and Stauffenberg's failed execution attempt of Hitler. You'll then paddle further past Tiergarten and Zoologischer Garten.

Next up, cross one of the best–known Berlin locks and the city's widest bridge, a fun part and unique adventure especially for older children. At the Spreedreieck (Spree Triangle) the tour will meet the Spree. Enjoy the house boots on the banks, the old warehouses and risk a view of the modern, high-tech offices. Finally, paddle along the beautiful Spree river towards the end point at Tiergarten S-Bahn station.

During the afternoon tour, the sights will be toured in the reverse order.
