Berlin and Potsdam
Many major cities are located on the water, but only one can be trafficed with charter boats: Berlin. The city has a good network of waterways from bustling canals, small and large lakes and romantic waterways. There are numerous interesting attractions ashore for example the chancellery and also the Reichstag is a major highlight for every visitor. There are 183 kilometers of urban waterways which offer a perfect network of roads with a few locks. The city has twelve waterways, which leads you to 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 should not forget to visit Potsdam with the 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, which are worth to visit. 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.
