Furstenberg Base - Brandenberg Region - Germany

As you leave Fürstenberg, head westwards towards the great lakes of Mecklenburg. The first staging post on this inland waterway adventure will be Rheinsberg with its rococo palace. It was where Frederick the Great resided in his youth and served as a model for the famous Sans souci in Potsdam.

Heading to Mirow you will discover its curious lake houses with their thatched roofs and then Lake Müritz, not forgetting the delightful town of Röbel, its streets filled with half-timbered houses. Heading westwards, you’ll set a course for Wesenberg, memorable for its bridge, totally clad in wood, and then Neustrelitz and its baroque palace. Its orangery has today been converted into a concert hall. On these varied and vast waterways, cruising requires more careful attention than on a canal, but you are well rewarded by being able to drop anchor in the middle of a lake and enjoy some of the purest water in Europe and natural surroundings that are wonderfully unspoilt.

Mirow: A little village of thatched houses on the shores of Lake Mirow, you'll love the restfulness of this place, surrounded by trees. If you moor your Pénichette here, you could visit the small church and palace or go for a hot drink at the harbour-master’s lodge.

Neustrelitz: Everyone who spends their boating holidays on the Mecklenburg Lakes will love Neustrelitz, with its little restaurants and unique atmosphere. As you head into the town, with its star-shaped plan, you can visit the church and town hall where you’ll notice the architectural influence of Eastern Europe.

Priepert: There’s a small marina where you can moor your self-drive boat, buy a few smoked fish – the local speciality – from the lake fisherman or enjoy a family meal at the restaurant attached to the marina.

Rheinsberg: Visit the magnificent Rheinsberg Palace, once the home of Frederick II of Prussia. If you’re lucky, you might even catch the classical music and opera festival that takes place there every year. Take time out from your cruise to visit the attractive town and its many small shops.

Templin: Take a break from your cruise to explore the important historic sites here, such as the old medieval town with its partially preserved gates and walls, the town hall and the baroque parish church. The town is close to Berlin and is a major tourist attraction.

Waren: Waren is a pretty spa town to the north of Lake Müritz. You could stop your Pénichette here to do your shopping, tour some of the sights and enjoy the view of the lake. It’s also highly regarded for the sport of "accrobranching" along tree-top adventure trails.

Wesenberg: Tie up your license-free boat in this charming Mecklenburg village to visit its castle and 14th century Gothic church, or to stroll through the medieval centre, made up of delightful half-timbered houses.
