Cruise in Brandenburg & Mecklenburg Germany

The regions of Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommen offer a succession of superb lakes (such as Muritzsee lake) connected by rivers and canals. These regions are a marvel of nature as much for the purity of their waters as for the great variety of fauna and flora. Enjoy cruising on one of the largest inland waterway spaces in Europe! Remember: bring your binoculars!

The base is located in Rheinsberg, a city on the shores of Lake Grienerick, near the magnificent castle and its park, the academy of music and opera house. Lake Stechlin, renowned for its clear water, offers a 12m deep underwater view, to the delight of divers who relish this unforgettable experience. With the navigation certificate obtained from theoretical and practical instruction, boat lovers can delight in the fabulous experience of living on the water, without needing an existing boat licence. This certificate is however not valid from Zehdenick towards Berlin.
