From Fürstenberg

Boat hire to explore the Mecklenburg lakes

Departing from our base in Fürstenberg, cruise towards Müritz Lake, passing through many pretty towns and villages including Rheinsberg, or go back towards Berlin (please note that to pass Liebenwalde southbound a permit is required).

Boat hire on the Mecklenburg Lakes in a few words…

As you leave Fürstenberg, head westwards towards the great lakes of Mecklenburg. The first staging post on this inland waterway adventure will be Rheinsberg with its rococo palace. It was where Frederick the Great resided in his youth and served as a model for the famous Sans souci in Potsdam. Heading to Mirow you will discover its curious lake houses with their thatched roofs and then Lake Müritz, not forgetting the delightful town of Röbel, its streets filled with half-timbered houses. Heading westwards, you’ll set a course for Wesenberg, memorable for its bridge, totally clad in wood, and then Neustrelitz and its baroque palace. Its orangery has today been converted into a concert hall. On these varied and vast waterways, cruising requires more careful attention than on a canal, but you are well rewarded by being able to drop anchor in the middle of a lake and enjoy some of the purest water in Europe and natural surroundings that are wonderfully unspoilt.

The
highlights of Fürstenberg
