Cruise ships on Göta canal – Berg locks
Watching the cruise ships being lifted up or down the large Carl Johan staircase is a magical experience. Berg locks attracts many spectators and, if you’re lucky, you’ll see one of the classic canal boats Wilhelm Tham, Diana or Juno making their way up or down the Göta canal.
But the best way to experience Göta canal is from the water. Why not take a cruise on the beautiful Berg to Borensberg stretch? The cruise takes about 3.5 hours one way. You can make the return journey by boat, bus or bicycle. If you don’t have your own bike, you can rent one at Kaffeteriet in Borensberg and Berg.
M/S Wasa Lejon operates the route Berg locks – Borensberg – Berg locks (departs at 10.00 from Berg) from 11 May – 13 Sep 2023.
The passenger boat M/B Stockholm was added in Linköping during the 2022 boating season. The boat line links Linköping’s two canals, the Göta canal and the Kinda canal, and makes it possible to get between Berg locks and the Linköping centre waterway. The boat offers three tours:
– Berg locks to Linköping city (75 min)
– Linköping city to Berg locks (75 min)
– Guided tour in Linköping (approx. 60 min)
