After a short section on the canalised Spree you will turn into Müggelspree at Große Tränke. Thanks to the slight current, your canoe will now float downstream pleasantly along the curvy route and past vast pastures bordering the man-made flood areas. The early morning mist makes for a very romantic setting.

For the first few kilometres of the tour, going past Hangelsberg, Mönchwinkel and Spreeau, you travel on a narrow stretch of the Spree. At the end of a relaxed day of touring you can berth in Spreenhagen or pitch your tent on the nearby Jägerbude campsite on the banks of the Spree. From here you will go on to the popular Lake Dämeritzsee in the heart of Erkner the next day.
