Barnim - Back to Nature!
Leisure activities near and on the water is quite definitely one of the specialities of the Barnim Land.
Right at the top of the popularity scale are round trips on the most beautiful lake of the Mark Brandenburg, the Werbellin Lake. To coffee and cake or also on a moonlight trip you can enjoy the countryside and the lake in full. Besides the Werbellin lake the Finow canal, as the oldest artificial water route in Germany, is always also worth a trip by boat. On the "Anneliese" you can get to know traditional shipping, such as towing or punting. A historic raft trip on the Finow canal is also recommended. On the "Schippelschute" you can raft along the canal and you can with a bit of luck discover a kingfisher or admire the work of the beaver. A very special experience is passing through the locks by the ship lift in Niederfinow. A height difference of 36 m is overcome in around an hour. During this time you can hear interesting details about this steel colossus, which now has been ensuring the safe transport of ships on the Oder-Havel canal for 70 years.
