Boating holidays in Müritz & Mecklenburg

Cruise along the canals of northern Germany and the great lakes of Mecklenburg aboard your self drive boat. This is a cruising area of great natural beauty, ideal for bathing and a fisherman's paradise.

The Fleesensee lake is one of the most beautiful regions in Germany. Lake Müritz is close by and home to many different birds. You will head west from Fürstenberg towards the great lakes of Mecklenburg. Your first port of call is likely to be the rococo castle at Rheinsberg.

You need to be a little more careful when cruising in these vast, fast-flowing waters than when on a canal; but you will feel richly rewarded when laying anchor in the middle of a lake and diving into some of the purest water in Europe, surrounded by sublime and unspoilt scenery. The perfect boating holiday destination for nature lovers!
