Brandenburg

River Havel, inshore waters of Tremplin & Ruppin Lake, Finowkanal, Oder, Spree

The first stopping place of your barging holiday is Himmelpfort (Gateway to Heaven), the town of Father Christmas. There is also a fishery where you can stock up with smoked fish. Don’t miss the sidetrip to Lychen.

The Woblitz river twists its way through forest before opening out into the lake of Lychen: it is one of the loveliest river cruises in the area. The Havel is a quiet river which flows through tranquil countryside. You should stop off at Regow, an organic farm with a hundred or so goats which sells several different mouthwatering cheeses.

The Templin towers welcome the visitor from afar. Its town walls give it a very romantic feel. Beyond Liebenwalde there is a choice of three directions.

To the west, the Neuruppin lakes preserve an environment in which ospreys, beavers and otters all flourish. Altruppin, the old capital, stands in lovely surroundings. Neuruppin, the “new” town dating from the 18th century, bears witness to Prussia’s Age of Enlightenment which has left its mark on the whole region from Berlin to Potsdam.

To the south lie Berlin and Potsdam, both towns which are best discovered from the water.

To the east, don’t miss the Finowkanal, an old canal which twists and turns through lovely countryside on its way to a monument unique in Europe, the Niederfinow Boat Lift on the Oder Havel canal.
