The Mecklenburg Lake District consists of more than 1000, largely interconnected lakes. The banks of the waterways are fringed by forests, meadows and marshes. Nature dominates the landscape, but surprisingly there is a well developed infrastructure in the region. Plauer See, Fleesensee, Kölpinsee and the queen of all German lakes - the Müritz - form the Mecklenburg Upper Lakes. Each of these four lakes is impressive because of it's majestic size and are known as the blue quartet. They are 62 metres above the sea level.
There are no locks and just a few bridges making this a perfect area for houseboats.
The Potsdamer Havel has many mooring facilities. There are no comparable mooring facilities anywhere in the rest of the Mecklenburg and Märkischen waters. Boaters are welcome everywhere. The lakes of the Potsdamer Havel are beautiful, but don't forget to go to Potsdam and visit the many castles and estates.
