The Details...

The Modern Houseboat is a unique opportunity to take a more adventurous approach to your stay in Berlin. Located on Lake Rummelsburg, a small bay in the River Spree, there is hardly a more quirky place to stay in the city, and how appropriate for this arty, often eccentric, city.

Inside, the entire front facing bay opens up letting the outdoors in. Or on colder days enjoy gazing through the huge windows to see views of the city and the landmark TV tower on the horizon. You’ll feel completely separate from the bustle of the city, yet the centre of Berlin is only 15 minutes away by public transport, with a tram station about 100m from the harbour.

The boat is around 60 square meters and features an open kitchen complete with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, coffee maker and everything else you’re likely to need. A large living area with a retractable double bed and a couch makes for a great place to hang out and admire the view, and also doubles as an additional sleeping area. On the technology front, there’s a flat-screen TV and free Wi-Fi throughout.

Elsewhere, there’s a shower room, a separate toilet and the main bedroom with a comfortable double bed overlooking the water. Keep cosy with a real fire in winter, or enjoy the air-conditioning for those hot summer nights. For those travelling between March and October two lovely ‘Bella Ciao’ bikes are also available for use during your stay.

Modern Boat is set on the peaceful Lake Rummelsburg in central Berlin and offers stunning views of the city. A grocery shop and a few restaurants are just a 5-minute walk away and, just 200 yards away, Stadtboote offers boat rentals so you can explore the River Spree. The lively Friedrichshain district also boasts some more great restaurants, as well as bars and clubs and is only 1.2 miles from your boat. To get into the centre hop on a tram at Hauptstraße Road and you’ll be whisked to Alexanderplatz in less than 20 minutes, or take advantage of the free parking on site should you prefer.
