Looking for River Tours and Street Food in Berlin and Munich

We're hoping to go on river tours in Berlin and in Munich, ideally ones that point out interesting architecture and neighborhoods. Do you have any suggestions?

We're also looking for ideas of areas in Berlin and in Munich where we can walk around and try local street food or experience food markets.

Thanks so much for your suggestions. We've never been to Germany, so detailed responses would be appreciated!

Berlin- there are boat rides that go past all the new architecture, interesting. We just walked up and bought a ticket, walked onboard.
Street food: Curry Wurst!! It is a very popular street food.We saw it everywhere. We stayed in the area near the Brandenburg Gate.
Your hotel’s concierge or regular front desk staff should be able to give you maps and advice on where to go.

As mentioned Currywurst is native street food. Another one are "belegte Brötchen" (ready-made bread rolls or half-ones). Nearly all bakeries have this. Kamps or Wiener Feinbäckerei bakeries are a good address. Another special one a soups - Germans like soups in various ways, also Gulasch and Soljanka.

In Berlin you will also find various other street foods, most known is Döner Kebap (German Turkish roots; it is a different one than in Turkey). You will find Falafel, Asian fast food, burgers, donuts, and so on.

And you will also find other very specialised food places. One of my favorites is Melt (Grünberger Strasse) where you only can eat Crepes and Galettes (French kitchen) in an outstanding quality.

Best burger for me is Burgermeister at Schlesisches Tor.

My best Currywurst is at Bier's - it was the owner's name. For Currywurst I would avoid all eateries with a numbe in their name.

Street food trucks you will often find on week markets in Berlin (most Saturdays), e. g. Boxhagener Platz or Winterfeldtplatz.

Thanks so much for your suggestions, Suki, Mark and Melissa.

Can't wait to try some of the local foods and to see some of the city by water!
