River Havel, Mecklenburg Lake District, Lake Müritz, Lake Plauer See, Müritz-Elde
From Fürstenberg you may head out to the great lakes of Mecklenburg aboard your Pénichette® or Europa boats. Your first visit has to be the rococo castle at Rheinsberg.
Further west there is Mirow with its strange wooden boathouses, the charming town of Roblin and the great lake of Müritz. Heading eastward there is Weserberg with its wooden harbour buildings, as well as Neustrelitz.
On these varied waterways and open lakes a little more care is required than on canals, but what better reward than to anchor far out in a lake and take advantage of some of the purest water in Europe for a swim in idyllic and unspoilt surroundings. During your boating holiday, you should also stop at one of the many fish smoke-houses to enjoy this local speciality.
