How do I redeem my boat ticket?

You can get your normal Best of Berlin boarding pass and your boat ticket on our buses! Simply show your ticket, which you received by email, on the bus or to our sales team. Our staff will then issue your boarding pass. 

However, it is particularly important that you first redeem your boarding pass on the bus before you start your boat trip. This cannot be done on the ship itself. 

Where can I change to the boat?

You will find the jetties where you can start your boat tour near stops 14 and 16. You will find more information about the location of the jetty on your boarding pass or on our flyer

How long is the boat tour?

You should allow about an hour for the boat trip with our partner Stern & Kreis. So expect a total of 3.5 hours if you want to experience your Best of Berlin Tour and your boat trip in one day. 

At what frequency do the ships depart?

The Stern und Kreis Schifffahrt ships depart from the piers every 30 to 60 minutes during operating hours. You will find the exact departure times on your ticket.

Can I use the boat as often as I like during my tour?

No, unfortunately this is not possible. You can only take the boat trip once during the validity of your ticket. 

What are the operating times of the ships?

There are different operating times depending on the day of the week:

Mon-Thu + Sun: 11:00 - 16:00

Fr & Sa: 11:00 - 17:30
