Land of the 1000 lakes

The Mecklenburg Lake District – between Berlin

and the Baltic Sea – can be actively explored in very

different, enjoyable ways: water tours as well as hiking

and biking tours.

Water tours in the land of

1,000 lakes

The Mecklenburg Lake District invites you

to paddle, sail, dive, swim and enjoy. But

which lake is the best for what type of activity?

For example, there is often a breeze

on Lake Müritz, which means it is perfect

for sailors and surfers. Diving is particularly

suited in the clear and calm water

of the Feldberg lake district and the small

lake plateau is a paradise for paddlers.

There, most of the lakes are connected

through channels or rivers.

A bed with an ocean view

A houseboat or raft is the best way to explore

the region. You can either choose to

sleep in a secluded anchorage bay under a

star-filled sky, or in a luxury marina in one

of the harbour cities. In Europe’s largest

networked aquatic sports area, many of

the 1,117 lakes are connected through natural

rivers and canals. Numerous charter

companies rent boats for 2 to 12 persons.

A boating license is not required; instead,

you will receive a thorough introduction

prior to beginning your journey. Each

amateur captain determines their own individual

sailing schedule. Whether for one

or two weeks or for the entire summer –

there are enough possibilities for taking a

trip. And what’s best: the excellent water

quality in the lakes combines boating with


Untamed, real nature

Several national natural environments

lie in the area of the lake district – or are

located in the vicinity. These protected

regions are home to many rare species

of animals, such as the common crane,

which can be watched from nearby

during the spring and autumn months.

The Müritz National Park is a spectacular

destination for hikers. The park’s old

beech wood forests belong to the UNESCO

World Natural Heritage.

Holidays on

the Water

„Venice, Southern France, Irish canals. Quite wonderful areas,“ says

Robert Tremmel, a travel journalist from Mirow.

But for a breakfast looking out across water lilies and thousands of

birds in the golden autumn, come to the land of 1000 lakes.

Motor yachts



Daily Rent

Houseboat is a collective

term for motor

boats with a living

room, a kitchen and

a bathroom. The houseboats

are your own

mobile lodge. The boats

are up to 15 meters

long and have been

elegantly designed. In

search of the perfect

floor plan, Harald

Kuhnle devised the

Kormoran series. It has

become a trademark of

the region and is being

built in Rechlin for the

whole of Europe.

These boats are up to

15 meters long and

are sometimes called

Dutch or steel yachts.

They are pleasant

to drive which is

important if you are

is all about finding and

booking that exclusive

pitch on one of the

crystal clear lakes. Whether

you have a tent, a

caravan or a motorhome

the best pitches are in

high demand. If you

don‘t own a caravan, you

can easily rent a caravan

and raft in a duo which

is called a watercamper/

freecamper made in

Mecklenburg. These Tom

Sawyer style wooden

rafts are mainly rented

out on the smaller lakes.

The Müritz or the

Kummerow Lake

is well known for

competitive sailing for

catamarans, dinghies

and cruisers. There

are sailing regattas,

places to rent boats

and sailing schools for

beginners. Traveling

sailors love the weeklong

journey over

rivers and lakes by

the Binnenrevier. One
