Is there anything more beautiful than discovering the magnificent natural landscape of the Ruppiner Seenland from the water - and not only letting your legs dangle, but also your soul?

Discover the region's most beautiful boat tours through unspoiled river landscapes and idyllic lakes, along the Rhin, the Ruppiner Canal or along the Havel from Fürstenberg to Berlin. Many routes can be explored without a boating license and offer ideal conditions for a vacation with the family.

How to become an environmentally conscious houseboat professional

  1. Consideration & rules save lives

    Stay mindful to protect yourself and others! The right-hand rule and "right before left" also apply on the water. When overtaking, please keep a generous distance. Attention: Commercial shipping always has the right of way! Furthermore, privately used, motor-driven boats must give way to wind- and muscle-powered pleasure boats. Sailors and surfers have right of way over rowboats, kayaks and SUPs. Also find out in advance about current water levels, construction work and lock times.

  2. Let nature be natural

    Densely vegetated shoreline areas are habitats for numerous species of wildlife. Keep your boat away from sensitive shoreline areas and skirt shallow waters. Official entry and exit points, as well as moorings and harbors, are signposted and marked. Make sure that no trash is left behind in nature!

  3. Just switch off (everything)

    Vacation means switching off. If you leave your jukeboxes turned off, you can listen to nature all the better: The cawing of cranes, the flirting and singing of reed warblers or the chirping of crickets in the early evening. Nothing is more restful than listening to the silence on the water. For the sake of nature and those around you, avoid too loud conversations and shouts. And beware: The well-known alcohol limit from road traffic also applies to road users on the water!
