Germany has a huge sailing and boating community within the inland waters and along the coastline. There are waters and facilities for sailing and leisure boating along the Baltic Sea (Ostsee), North Sea (Nordsee) coastlines of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein and on the many lakes and rivers dotted around the country. One of Europe’s most beautiful regions, the waterways of Brandenburg and Mecklenburg form a network of lakes and canals in an area of forests and farmland.
Why to choose
The lakes offer a wide range of water sports, especially the Muritz lake, Germany’s largest. The historic towns of Potsdam and Brandenburg and the castles of Rheinsberg and Schwerin are all worth a visit. Whilst in this part of eastern Germany, you cannot miss the charm of Berlin, with its history, buildings, and 100 kilometres of canals with more bridges than Venice.
