Cast off and ship ahoy!

The Potsdam and Brandenburg Havel Lakes are part of what is known as 'Blue Paradise' – Europe's largest connected water-sport region between the Elbe and Oder Rivers, the Baltic Sea and the Spree Forest.

Water-sport region

More than 40 lakes, connecting canals and winding arms of the Havel River stretch over an overall length of about 180 kilometres and offer countless opportunities for exploration on board a yacht, houseboat or canoe.

Discover history and culture along the Havel Lakes

The Potsdam and Brandenburg Havel Lakes distinguish themselves by pristine countryside and countless sights ashore – all within easy reach of the German capital Berlin.

Ample mooring facilities

There are marinas and rest areas for roaming boaters along the way, and water-sport clubs also offer berths for all sizes of boats throughout the water-sport region. Many restaurants and cafés provide direct accessibility to their facilities by boat.
