Reederei Riedel City Centre Tours

No other European Metropolis offers that direct view into the heart of a city. Large parts of the old and new architecture were built towards the waterfront. while vast parts of the Spree riverbank are not lined up by streets. It's especially this aspect that makes this city centre tour through Berlin so special - almost obligatory, for those seeking to truly get to know Berlin.

So, come aboard and experience Berlin's inner city first hand and unfettered by one or our upper deck or panoramic ships!
