Allow yourself a time out on the waters of Berlin
When one first thinks of Berlin, one might not instantly imagine days spent relaxing in the heart of a tranquil lake, but this is exactly what's available when you look into boat rental in the city. Built upon a swamp, Berlin is a very waterlogged city, forming hundreds of stunning lakes, streams and rivers all throughout Berlin and Brandenburg. Head to Insel der Jugend in Treptower Park to hire a pedalo or rowing boat to explore the Spree – the city's central artery. There are also several pleasure cruises running daily through Exclusiv Charter Cruises. Spreepoint Boat Rental provides motorised boats to tour the enormous Müggelsee lake near Köpenick.
