Boat rental Berlin: relaxed charter trips

For unforgettable parties with 6 to 120 people

Charter a historic motor yacht from us in Berlin and enjoy exclusive celebrations in small groups of 6 to 12 people on the Lübeck. The barge Hansa is particularly suitable for stand-up cruises with around 20 people.

With the capital city rafts, lounge rafts, our event raft or the event ship, we offer relaxed tours for 8 to 60 people to the Müggelsee, where swimming stops can be made on request.

Or hire one of our large boats if you are planning a celebration for up to 120 people. The floating location starts at the landing stage “Am Klipper” (Treptower Park), sails past the old town of Köpenick and continues on the Müggelspree to the Großer Müggelsee.

Our event ship Arcona

Cast off for an exclusive Spree cruise on board our event ship Arcona. The former tugboat offers plenty of space for your event for up to 60 people. Whether as a relaxed space to linger or as a trendy party location: the newly refurbished interior can be transformed to suit your event in no time at all. We are happy to furnish the front deck with seating or bar tables according to your wishes. Simply take a seat at the bar counter and enjoy the cool drinks that our staff will prepare for you.

The historic atmosphere of the Arcona lends a special charm to your private or business event. At the same time, the event ship offers high-quality technology and enough space for a boat trip with buffet.

Boat trip with buffet

The desired date has been set and the boat has been hired? For an unforgettable event such as a wedding, a birthday or a business celebration, delicious food is of course a must. Thanks to our in-house caterer, the Spreeküche, we can provide you with the right catering. From finger food to a 3-course menu to a boat trip with buffet – at Hauptstadtfloß you will find the right thing for every occasion and every palate.

Technology and decoration on the ships

There is a music system on all boats and ships that you can use free of charge. You can connect your smartphone, tablet or laptop via a jack cable or Bluetooth to play your music. If you do not bring your own music, we will play our playlists. Our system is calibrated, as we have to adhere to the volume regulations – we have to turn the volume down from 10 p.m. onwards. Nevertheless, the music is loud enough for partying, don’t worry.


Any external technology that is brought along must be discussed with us in advance. Unfortunately, megaphones and additional amplifiers are not permitted.


The boats are rented out without themed decoration as standard. However, we are happy to accommodate individual requests, i.e. you can book tablecloths and decorative flower arrangements separately. Thematic decoration must be brought from your own repertoire.


Of course, if you book catering, the buffet area is covered.

Barrier-free ships and landing stages

On Lounge Raft I and II as well as on Capital City Raft II, the space allows you to move around on the main deck (lower deck) at ground level. However, assistance is required to access the toilets. From the barrier-free landing stage at Oberbaumbrücke, we offer round trips through Berlin as well as to Müggelsee.
