Discover Berlin by houseboat, boat or raft! If you already know Berlin by foot, you can explore new sides of the city by changing the perspective. Crossed by waterways, Berlin is perfect for a day trip by boat or raft. If you have a bit more time at your disposal and would like to invest your next holiday in exploring the region, you can get to know the lake-rich landscape of Berlin and Brandenburg on a houseboat. As a general rule: boats up to 15 hp do not require a driving licence, for boats with more horsepower you need a boat driving licence all over Berlin. In the Brandenburg area there are some areas which are passable with a charter licence. This can be purchased within a few hours and is then valid for the charter period and the rented boat.
