Suggestion from the Crew: If this activity is sold-out, check one of our other tours. Step back in time as you explore the sights along the Spree in Berlin aboard the Hemingway, a historic boat from the late 19th century. Immerse yourself in the boat's bohemian style and enjoy the ambiance of its beautiful saloon. Though not electric and noise-free like our Motoryacht Fitzgerald, the Hemingway offers the chance to enter a time capsule with its own unique charm and its nostalgic atmosphere. Refreshments are available for purchase, including a selection of fine wines, premium beers, and gourmet snacks, all served by a crew devoted to your comfort. Be greeted at the jetty, conveniently located near the Berlin Cathedral, by a crew that brings the spirit of the era to life. Choose to relax in the Hemingway’s opulent saloon, outfitted with vintage furnishings and decor, or take in the views from the open deck, where you can feel the breeze and see the city from a unique viewpoint. The boat's design ensures there are cozy corners and elegant seating arrangements for everyone, rain or shine. Sail through Berlin's historic heart, with our commentaries bringing the past and present of the city to life. Depending on the tour you choose, you glide past iconic landmarks such as the new Berlin Palace, the charming Nikolaiviertel, the poignant Tränenpalast (Palace of Tears), the imposing Reichstag, and the modern German Chancellery, or you experience Berlin's East or West Side. On the return to your starting point, let the sound of music complement the timeless journey aboard the Hemingway, creating an unforgettable experience on Berlin’s waters.
