The Modern Houseboat is a unique opportunity to discover the adventure of life on water while unwinding and taking in the natural surroundings of the city of Berlin.
Located on Lake Rummelsburg, a small bay in the river Spree, there is hardly a more unique place to stay in Berlin: the entire front of the houseboat opens up through huge windows that offer views of the bay, city and the landmark TV tower on the horizon. You feel completely withdrawn from the bustle of the city with only a few ducks and Ludwig, the swan occasionally coming by for breakfast, yet you’re only 15 minutes from the city centre.
The boat features a minimal interior not to distract the eye from the amazing view through the floor-to-ceiling windows covering the entire front of the boat. Much of the furniture including the sofas and the beds are custom-made.
The boat is approximately 60 square meters and features an open kitchen (with dishwasher, fridge/freezer etc.), a large living area with a retractable double bed and a couch, a shower room, a separate toilet and the main bedroom with a comfortable double bed overlooking the water. There is a fireplace to keep the boat warm in winter and air-conditioning for hot summer nights. Two lovely “˜Bella Ciao’ bikes are also available for the guests to use. Just like the boat, they are hand-crafted, timeless classics.
The boat is available to rent and sleeps two adults and two children.
