Relaxed tour in the Spreewald
Of course, the largest waterways should be avoided due to the numerous large ships. Among others, the Elbe and the Rhine near the big cities. The most beautiful river routes can be found for example in the Spreewald. Here the round trip in the Upper Spreewald from Burg to Lübbenau and back to Burg is especially recommended.

All in all 36 kilometres long. If you are lucky, you can catch a glimpse of animals that have found their home in the rivers and their surroundings on the canoe tour. A dense network of rivers, lakes and canals offers an idyllic impression and is ideal for relaxing sports in your free time. You can also complete this tour in stages of several days. Inns, locks and an open-air museum provide variety.

Canoeing on the Lahn
The Lahn is one of the most beautiful hiking rivers in Germany. If you would like to plan a longer tour you can take the Lahn from Roth near Marburg to Lahnstein. The total of 176 kilometres can be a sporting challenge for your holiday. A moderate course of the river and a number of sights sweeten the sport on the water for everyone.

Canoeing on the Wiesent
Canoeing in Franconian Switzerland between the small town of Waischenfeld and Ebermannstadt offers besides fun on the water also an idyllic environment. The Wiesent is the right river for beginners as well as for those who are looking for a lively ride with medium difficulty.

It is possible to rent 1 or 2 person kayaks as well as 3 person canoes on site. Also for a company event such an excursion with the canoe is suitable.
