Boats that you can drive yourself (also without a boat license)

drive yourself

Explore the beauty of Berlin from the water

Cruise through the political centre of Germany by motorboat and experience the cosmopolitan flair along the river Spree. The capitals seemingly endless lake scenery also invites you on swimming and BBQ trips.

Along the river Spree you will cruise past the Federal Chancellery, parliament, Museum Island and the Berliner Cathedral. Please note: Due to the high volume of traffic in the city centre between Charlottenburg and Mühlendamm there is a radio obligation. Therefore, we advise you to rather charter a boat with a skipper in this area. This way you can enjoy your private city sightseeing tour and picnic to the fullest. If you rent a houseboat you will be able to cruise to the city centre of Berlin in the early morning or late evening hours without radio obligation. Just stop overnight at one of many 24-hour docks and enjoy your boating holiday in Berlin.

For those of you who wish to explore in your own time (with or without a boat license), Berlin’s waterways and lakes have a lot to offer. Whether it’s waterskiing, stand up paddling (SUP), jet skiing, barbecue or just having fun swimming you will always enjoy yourself to the fullest on Lake Havel, Lake Tegel or Müggelsee.

There is no driving license required for all motorboats and rafts with up to 15 PS. Of course, you will be fully instructed on the operation and rules of conduct by our experienced staff before starting your trip. For all boats with a higher engine output a boat license is required.
