Mecklenburg Lake District Our main location for boating holidays is right in the centre of this region, on the southeast shore of the Müritz, Mecklenburg‘s largest lake. KUHNLE-TOURS is the biggest charter company in this region. 2500 kilometres of rivers and well over 1000 lakes and canals are waiting for you. Almost untouched nature, cultural highlights and historic sights are there for you to discover. Enjoy the abundant wild flowers and look out for rare waterbirds. Journey through lake after lake, each as beautiful as the last, but none the same. The Blue Quartet comprises of Plauer lake, Fleesensee, Kölpinsee and the queen of all German lakes: the Müritz. Each of these four lakes is impressive by its size. There are no locks and just a few bridges making the area ideal for houseboats. Müritz-Havel Waterway – Castle Island, Castle Mirow and Rheinsberg The first highlight on the way from the Müritz to Berlin is the former ducal residence, Mirow. Cross the moat and stroll through the park. Visit the baroque palace where the English Queen Sophie Charlotte lived and stroll to the Love Island. Before the completion of the MüritzHavel waterway, the Müritz was connected to the small lake area over the so-called Old ride and the Bolter lock. Today, only the Lake is navigable. In the summer, the lilies are in bloom and a visit is highly recommended. A trip to the Rheinsberg waters leads to the Brandenburg town, made famous by the German poets Theodor Fontane and Kurt Tucholsky. The Rheinsberg Palace with its garden provides a unique backdrop from the boat. The Rheinsberg waters have numerous tributaries, lakes and bays and both beautiful and quiet anchorages. Upper Havel Waterway – Neustrelitz and Furstenberg In the northern part of the small lakes at the beginning of the Upper Havel waterway is Neustrelitz. This former residence of the Dukes of Mecklenburg-Strelitz has an impressive baroque square and interesting streets. With its cultural offerings (State Theatre of Mecklenburg, Kachelofenfabrik, Slavic Village) and good shopping, a visit is worthwhile. A walk through the castle garden with its large lawn and orangery is not to be missed. Between Neustrelitz and Furstenberg is the beautiful countryside along the Upper Havel. The banks are natural and are largely untouched. Look out for kingfishers and if you are very lucky you may see osprey. There are many tranquil bays. The "Wasserwanderrastplatz" in Wesenberg offers a beautiful mooring. Furstenberg offers a wide variety of things to do: many restaurants and in the old town you can admire the historic fishermen's houses. A visit to the Ravensbrück memorial provides insights into the recent history of the place. In Himmelpfort, stop and visit the old city and the Christmas post office. After this you are now entering one of the most beautiful sections as the Upper Havel gently winds between Himmelpfort and Burgwall. It is a unique place for nature. At the start of this waterway is Schorfheide, which is an unspoilt area of marsh. In this area even cranes and gray geese breed. Even if you have no plans to go towards Berlin it is worth making this detour to experience the route. Another worthwhile detour is to Templin. The old town has well preserved medieval city walls and a modern natural thermal spa will make a memorable day ashore. The historic drawbridge and lock are a couple of sights best seen from the boat.

Berlin and Potsdam Many major cities are on the water, but only one can be busy with charter boats: Berlin. The city has a good network of waterways from bustling canals, small and large lakes and romantic waterways. In addition to numerous interesting shore excursions to travel by boat to the Chancellery, and Reichstag is a major highlight for any visitor. There are 183 kilometres of urban waterways which offer a perfect network of roads with few locks. The city has twelve waterways in which you can achieve almost any attraction in the capital. A license is not required to travel for boats up to 15 PS / kW 11,03. The Potsdam Havel has many great mooring facilities. Boaters are welcome everywhere. The lakes of Potsdam Havel are beautiful, but do not forget that visit to Potsdam with its many castles and estates. There are some special moorings; Einstein's summer house in Caputh and the island town of Werder has orchards and vineyards worth visiting. A short detour from the main route is Paretz Palace, the former summer residence of the legendary Queen Louise. Like pearls on a chain, the Havel lakes connect and lead you west. Berlin Centre There's no better way to discover our capital Berlin, than at the controls of a houseboat. 183 kilometres of urban waterways offer a perfect network of roads with few locks. The city has twelve water ways in which you can find almost any attraction in the capital. The Berlin waterways are far easier than the motorways, and…which European Capital offers you the change to "review" your rulers from your boat? By the way … your sightseeing does not incur car parking charges (or the hassle of finding a spot). You are almost always able to find a mooring in the city, what better than mooring comfortably on a silent river/canal bank (separated by trees from the rush of city life) BUT with easy access to all that Berlin has to offer – shopping, strolling, museums, great food in boutique restaurants.

Experience New Year's Eve in Berlin

Berlin, Government district


Berlin Outskirts For anyone who has seen enough of the city, point your bow east or west. Going east enables you to go across lake Müggelsee and the charming canal-Datschenlandschaft Little Venice. After Dämeritzsee the idyllic Rüdersdorfer waters and Loecknitz provide welcome entertainment. The clear water is perfect for swimming. Here you can explore the limestone quarries and visit the Captain Museum. By going west along the Lower Havel waterway you go through Spandau and on to the Elbe. Potsdam City and surrounding area The Prussians have their own Havel. Flowing south under the Glienicker bridge it then turns to the northwest and travels through the vineyards and orchards to Werder. The Potsdam Havel benefits from many moorings, however boaters are welcome everywhere. Of interest are the castles at Potsdam as well as the interesting moorings at Einstein's summer house in Caputh, with the the island town of Werder and its beautiful orchards and vineyards - well worth a stroll. Paretz palace, the former residence of the legendary Queen Louise is just a short detour, and the town or Ketzin is also worth a visit. Brandenburg town is also close by. The city is completely visible from the water and the centre has several good mooring facilities. Try not to miss the cathedral and museums which are worth a visit.

On the condition that your home country does not require a boat driving licence or you can drive a boat less than 15 HP/11.03 kW (Our boats bellus, vetus 915, Febomobil are below this threshold.) There is one exception, a 6.6 km stretch near the Government Buildings in Berlin (km 14,1 to 20,7 SOW).

Areas a licence is NOT needed:

See the map for areas in Germany where you do not need a licence. (regardless of whether a licence is required in your home country). Any boat that is in our fleet can be driven in these destinations without a licence.

The Glienicke Bridge across the Havel River is connecting the Wannsee district of Berlin with the Brandenburg capital Potsdam.

Whilst most of the French waterways allow you to go boating without a boat driving licence, Germany has a number of fairly specific rules: If you are required in your home country to have a licence to drive a boat then the same applies in Germany – i.e. you need a boat driving licence. Our base Zeuthen is located in a “licence required” area. However the areas that include South of Berlin and the lower Havel-Waterway do NOT require a licence. If you wish to cruise an “licence required” area and you do not have a licence we will place an instructor on board who drives you to the next licence free area. German Residents of all nationalities have to observe the German laws – once they have resided in Germany in excess of 12 months.

Niederfinow Boat-lift of Niederfinow ship lift

Free licence destination

Trip to Poland

The Havel-Oder waterway is a commercial waterway and has been expanded accordingly. However, the 400-year-old Finow canal is something quite different. This historical channel was lovingly repaired in the 90's and has since been awakened from its slumber. The shores are densely covered and lined with tall trees. There are hand-operated locks, many a gem of industrial architecture (riveted steel bridges, old forts and brick-memory) and channel banks densely covered in vegetation giving you the feeling of being in a different country. Visit the twelve gates of the Finow canal and admire the boat lift. Niederfinow is one of the oldest operating ship lifts in Germany and a fine example of exceptional engineering. Two boat lifts are next to each other and transport boats in a steel basin (trough) which goes up and down like an elevator. The old 1934 elevator (trough length 85 meters) is now only available for recreational boating, while the new long elevator is for next generation boats and can cater for lengths up to 115 m. Niederfinow is a true marvel and a magnet for visitors. The Werbelliner waters Close by the Biosphere Reserve is the water of Werbellin. It is reached by driving through the beautiful, lush Werbellin Canal. The water is of such good quality that it is able to serve Fischerstuben whitefish. You can either eat on the spot or buy and create yourself a great meal believe me it is worth it - or of course catch your own!

The Dahme-chain of lakes On the outskirts of Berlin begins the Dahme-chain of lakes in the south. You find our base at Zeuthen, the subway station is only a few minutes from the marina. The green shores of Lake Zeuthen and Sellzugsee hide the King's palace in Wusterhausen. At Prieros every boat crew is faced with a choice: Go right into the quiet waters of Teupitzer or left towards Storkow where you travel over several lakes and canals lined with water lilies. Eventually you will reach Fontane's "Märkisches Meer", the Scharmutzelsee, and the spa town of Bad Saarow. Since reunification this region has become increasingly popular. The Spree-Oder waterway Where Berlin stops in Schmoeckwitz, the Spree-Oder waterway from the Dahme separates. After a break in Seddinsee you cruise from the lock Wernsdorf on the channel to the east. Fürstenwalde with its five hundred year old cathedral and the many games and fun activities for children is a worthwhile stopover on the way to the Spreewald. At Neuhauser you can quickly go to the next chain of lakes, leading to Schwieloch in Lower Lusatia. This lake has little traffic because the lake has no onward lakes and is a turnaround point. Continue along the Spree-Oder waterway, via Eisenhüttenstadt and reach the border between Poland and Germany. Sand banks and groynes shape the riverside going to the twin cities of Frankfurt / Slubice. On the Warta River Estuary at Kiistrin, the Oder continues through natural floodplains and isolated riverside forests. In Hohensaaten the waterway proceeds to Szczecin Lagoon or turn west towards Berlin or to Müritz.

ES & POLAND Experience Polish hospitality! Masurian Lakes

Licence free area

Galindia The waterways of Poland enjoy a wide range of mooring facilities many of which have been developed following the EU accession. The region also enjoys easy access from the Gdańsk, OlsztynMazury and Warsaw airports with a good highway leading to the Polish cruising areas. The area has seen a tourist boom with significant infrastructure renovation (locks, bridges, etc). The region now has many restaurants with interesting menus using seasonal fare.


The Great Masurian Lakes regions is legendary with its amazing scenery and over 3000 lakes, 25 of which are interconnected making it the ideal cruising area. The lakes are nicknamed in Polish “sky eyes“ due to the stunning emerald and ultramarine colours generated when reflecting the sky. Not only does the region offer the lakes but on land Mazury has beautiful quiet cobbled streets, ancient avenues and extensive natural birdlife with storks, sea eagles, cranes and bright canola fields, an unparalleled boating area. With our base in the south in Piaski we are nearby the native settlement “Galindia” on Lake Beldahn, where there are some amazing (and bizarre carvings) alternatively you are able to soak in the sprawling catacombs with a cold beer. Adjacent you have the 114 square kilometers of Lake Spirding almost the same size as Müritz. Mikolajki the main town of the southern chain of lakes is considered by some to be the Masurian Venice. To the north are the 104 square-kilometer Lake Mamry, surrounded by dense mixed forests. The region has Gizycko considered by many to be the capital of water sports. It is in this region that you find Marina Sztynort, a good base for a trip back into history with a visit to the von Lehndorff family castle in Sztynort (famous for his involvement in Hitlers assassination attempt – for which he was executed) or visit the museum on rural life in Wegorzewo.

Our fleet is located in Alsace-Lorraine. The rivers (Mosel and Saar) and numerous canals are fantastic to explore. Here we have meandering rivers intersecting with straight canal-sections. The route is diverse in that it runs through mountainous areas, vast fields of open countryside, and busy towns like Strasbourg, Nancy, Metz or Saarbrucken. The rivers Mosel and Saar are characterised with quaint little wine villages and historic buildings. Cruising along is a real trip back in time and dining ashore is a culinary delight. Delicious food in Alsace-Lorraine

Canal de la Marne au Rhin and Saar Expansive grain-fields, woods with plenty of game, picturesque villages and a number of reservoirs and lakes characterize these two canals. The main attraction of a boating holiday in Alsace-Lorraine lies in the historic architecture of the canalside buildings and structures, including the huge lock of Réchicourt and the boat-lift of St. Louis-Arzviller. The 290 kilometers of the Canal de la Marne au Rhin connects the basin around Paris with the plain of the river Rhine. Navigating several locks it travels through the Vosge mountains and the LorraineDepartment. Our main base, Niderviller is situated at the top where there is a long section with no locks. After this highest point the canal runs through two tunnels and drops down again into the lovely Alsacien valley of the river Zorn and on to Lutzelbourg, a village famous for glass-blowing. Towering above the village is a castle dating back to the 12th century. Several locks further down is Saverne with its pretty old houses and busy little shops.


The Canal de la Sarre leads from the Etang de Gondrexange at the Canal de la Marne au Rhin to Sarreguemines and is situated about 80 kilometres further North. The lakes on either side offer great views with some great swimming. The canal winds down in three major curves until it gets into the Saar-valley. River Saar offers many places to see, among them the famous Saar Bow near Mettlach.

Famous wine region


Archeological sites


Gourmet area Idyllic villages and towns

The wine region Mosel and Saar The early part of this region is characterised by wide green fields with the occasional industrial area, the later section (between Toul and Thionville) enjoys beautiful vineyards. The French part of the river has only short canal sections. The cities, like Pont-à-Mousson and Metz have good mooring facilities within an easy stroll of beautiful old quarters. We highly recommend Metz which is a former bishops’ and imperial city and is well–known for its cathedral with its famous glass paintings and the new Centre Pompidou Metz. Thionville is great for night life containing many squares where you can enjoy the cafes, restaurants and bars whilst savouring the atmosphere. The castle town of Sierck-les-Bains is where the Mosel says goodbye to France. Remich and Grevenmacher are the major cities on the Luxembourg Mosel. But also the smaller towns are worth a visit. Pass by Schengen, the place where Europe, as we know it today, has begun and Wormeldange, where you can go up the “Koeppchen”, probably the most expensive vineyard in Luxembourg. Destinations like Trier with its Roman sites and the medieval town of Saarburg are popular places to stop on these rivers.
