It’s so great and it’s so easy. It’s the perfect getaway for a sunday and the right mix between relaxation and activity: going around in Spreewald’s little natural canals in a canoe. Here’s how you do it.
Take the train from Berlin Alexanderplatz, Hauptbahnhof or Ostbahnhof to Lübbenau. From the trainstation in Lübbenau it’s a 15 min walk to the next boat rental. I can recommend Bootsverleih Hannemann. They will give you a canoe for two, paddles and a map and explain the way you can go in three or four hours. And off you are! In the middle of the greatest nature, in less than 1,5h hours from Berlin. I was truly amazed that it is so easy.
Here’s a map of Lübbenau.
And all of sudden you’re here.
Just many, many midges, bring spray!
Imagine to live here! The canal is the only way to your house.
I wonder what’s inside these strawy hills.
There are watergates around you have to manage yourself.
I was proud I understood how it works (it’s not difficult, anyway)
