Route: Königs Wusterhausen, Nottekanal, Mittenwalde, Galluner Canal, Lake Motzener See, Motzen

Route description/points of interest, background information:

The starting point for this tour is the town jetty in Königs Wusterhausen. From the lock on the Nottekanal in Königs Wusterhausen, the Nottekanal runs through meadows and fields where dense lines of trees and hedges grow close to the bank. The canal was opened in 1850 and was used to haul the barges laden with building materials to and from Berlin. After the locks, paddle boats can turn off southwards into the Galluner Canal towards Motzen. Lake Motzener See is a small, shallow, crystal-clear lake surrounded by forests offering water sports activities and bathing areas. Because of its shallow depth, the lake is a popular spot for surfers.

On-shore outings:

  • Mittenwalde: old Salt Market, historic buildings, St. Moritz church, local history museum (jetty at entrance to town)
  • Motzen: Golf course, “Haus des Gastes” (tourist information & local history museum), Residenzhotel (Ayurvedic medicine health centre, sculpture park), platform for the Mittenwalde - Töpchin draisine line, St. Martins Church, milestone, village green

Nautical information: The lock on the Nottekanal in Königs Wusterhausen is opened by the lock-keeper in summer without pre-booking. At low-water level, the Nottekanal has a navigable depth of just 1 metre in places! The drawbridge 200 metres behind the lock is opened by the lock-keeper in summer without pre-booking. Parts of the Nottekanal tend to be full of weed during the summer months. You can pass through both locks in Mittenwalde without pre-booking during the summer. At low-water level, the Galluner Canal has a navigable depth of just 0.9 metres. The Galluner Canal and Lake Motzener See are not open to motor boats.
