A Boat Tour to Köpenick: A Perfect Day Trip from Berlin

Feel like cruising out of town while in Berlin? Take a boat from Treptower Park down the Spree to Köpenick, a medieval town now part of Berlin.

The cruise is not long, but nice, and Köpenick has a quaint old town part plus a little palace on an island.

There, some 300 years ago, a military tribunal on demand of the king had to decide over having the crown prince executed for treason: the later Frederick the Great.

Wonderful side trip excursion from Berlin!
