Where to take your dog in Berlin

With its rich history, vibrant nightlife and laidback charm, Berlin really does have it all. As in many places around the globe, dog ownership in Berlin soared in 2020. It’s now estimated that there are around ten million dogs living in the German capital. It has frequently been voted as the country’s most dog-friendly city. So whatever you like doing, you’ll find plenty to do with your dog in Berlin.

Stern und Kreisschiffarcht

A river cruise is a wonderful way to see the city while avoiding the regular hustle and bustle. Stern + Kreis have over 30 different boat tours so you can really tailor your trip. These include an evening city tour and a historical city cruise so there’s something for everyone. Smaller dogs (under 5kg) can join you on the river cruise but may need a child’s ticket to do so. Guide dogs are free of charge.

Cafe am Neuen See

Located in the middle of the leafy Tiergarten, this cafe is a great place to stop for refreshments while walking your dog. The main building is reminiscent of a cosy ski loge, with rustic wood panels and roaring fires. But the real beauty is the large outdoor space which includes a giant deck that sits along the edge of the lake. Enjoy homemade pretzels from the onsite bakery while you sip a freshly tapped beer. You can even try your hand at curling!
