HOME, HOME ON THE BOAT

Where Berlin - - Where Now Adventures -

If pad­dling on the wa­ter for a few hours hasn’t sat­is­fied your thirst for ad­ven­ture, why not spend a whole day – or even a night – bob­bing along on Ber­lin’s ex­ten­sive waterways? One op­tion is to go raft­ing like a cer­tain fa­mous chil­dren’s book char­ac­ter with Huck­le­berry’s, a Pots­dam-based com­pany that rents out ba­sic, rus­tic house­boats by the hour, day, or week­end. They’ll even kit out your raft with a bar­be­cue upon re­quest. For a big­ger boat that’s prac­ti­cally lux­u­ri­ous by com­par­i­son, Ber­lin-based Wasserkutsche has a fleet of cozy, self-de­signed house­boats. Fea­tures in­clude a well-equipped kitchen in­clud­ing gas stove, heat­ing, a rooftop deck, and sleep­ing space for four. Note: both op­tions can be op­er­ated with­out a spe­cial boat­ing li­cense.
