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 kilometers 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 required to travel.
The Potsdam Havel has many great mooring facilities. Boaters are welcome everywhere. The lakes of Potsdam Havel are beautiful, but you must not forget to visit 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.
