Places To See and Things To Do - Weekend 2 Days Trip ● Fürstenberg: impressive lakes, a castle and a history of porcelain manufacture The historic city of Fürstenberg is a great place for a boating holiday base – not only is it crossed by the Havel River but it is also surrounded by the lakes of Röblinsee and Schwedtsee. There are lots of places of interest in Fürstenberg so we recommend spending some time here before setting sail (or at the end of your boating holiday). A visit to the castle introduces the city’s porcelain manufacturing history via the ‘Porzellan Museum’. ● Priepert: try water skiing on the Großer Priepertsee At the crossroads between the Upper Havel Waterway (OHW), the Müritz-Havel Waterway (MHW) and the lakes Ellbogensee and Großer Priepertsee, you’ll find charming Priepert. It’s location, centrally within all these waterways, means there are opportunities for a wide range of activities including swimming, canoeing and water skiing. ● Wesenberg: see sculptures amongst nature A stopover at Wasserwanderrastplatz in Wesenberg will allow you to stroll through Skulpturenpark, a nature park that is home to a number of large scale sculptures hidden in the shade of the city's trees. ● Neustrelitz: visit a former residence of the Dukes on the banks of the Zierker Navigate your self-drive canal boat along the Kammer Canal until reaching Lake Zierker and the town of Neustrelitz, a former residence of the Dukes of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. The Dukes Baroque palace was destroyed by fire in 1945 but the gardens still exist and are worth a visit along with the 18th-century Orangerie and the Schloßkirche (Palace Church) built in 1855–1859 in English Neo-Gothic style. Places To See and Things To Do - 1 Week Trip ● Fürstenberg: impressive lakes, a castle and a history of porcelain manufacture The historic city of Fürstenberg is a great place for a boating holiday base – not only is it crossed by the Havel River but it is also surrounded by the lakes of Röblinsee and Schwedtsee. There are lots of places of interest in Fürstenberg so we recommend spending some time here before setting sail (or at the end of your boating holiday). A visit to the castle introduces the city’s porcelain manufacturing history via the ‘Porzellan Museum’. ● Himmelpfort: a stopover in Santa's country This tiny village of just 500 inhabitants is well known throughout Germany as being the place of residence for Santa Claus! You and your canal boat crew should look out for the small post office which is said to receive nearly 300,000 letters from children around the world every year. Another site to visit is the ruins of an old abbey which is set on a promontory between the four lakes of Stolpsee, Sidowsee, Haussee and Moderfitzsee. Foodies should also try the local speciality of smoked fish. ● Lychen: the city of timber rafts No less than seven lakes surround the village of Lychen meaning it is an excellent place to moor up and enjoy both life around the waterways and the surrounding nature. Take part in swimming, canoeing, fishing and hiking. A must-see is the museum that’s all about the traditional timber rafts that are famous in this region. Trace the history of their use in transporting wood from the local forests to Berlin. The tradition is still alive today – perhaps you will come across one during your boating holiday (on a more comfortable boat!) as you navigate the waters of the Havel River and the Woblitz River. ● Zehdenick: a waterside town with a floating museum and swinging bridge The small town of Zehdenick is a great stop-off point for a boating holiday along the Havel River. In fact you will see its main attractions from the comfort of your spacious canal boat – an intriguing swinging bridge and the lock. There is also a museum that covers everything about the waterways – you’ll find it on a 42 metre long barge that is moored up at the edge of the river! What to Expect Onboard: The Confort 900 DP is an ideal canal barge for two couples as it has a cabin at each end of the boat with a living area in between. Each cabin provides generous amounts of space (including headroom of about 2m) and access to separate private bathrooms.
