Explore the Neiße River: You get into the boat (canoe, kayak or inflatable boat) in Guben at the Neiße terraces and let yourself drift downstream, past pristine countryside, away from the stresses of everyday life. With a little luck you will discover herons, beavers and kingfishers. Depending on the water level, there are many sandbanks ideal for taking a little break.
