Berlin river cruise and Brandenburg boat hire

Before heading to Berlin and its world-renowned 'Museum Island', make a detour aboard your self drive Pénichette® to visit stunning Potsdam and its famous Sans-Souci castle. To the south and east, canals, lakes and rivers flow into one another amidst a whole range of wonderful places to visit between the Spree and Oder, with some of the finest dining in Germany, such as at Bad Saarow.

At the heart of Oberhavel and Ruppiner Land, sail across the lakes at Neuruppin or opt for the Woblitz river which meanders through the forest before flowing into the great Lychen lake: this is certainly one of the loveliest river boating itineraries in the area. The Havel is a long, tranquil river that basks in sparsely populated countryside.
