The flow pushes you almost by itself, but now you have to maneuver and avoid the beaver dam. Numerous meanders, dense tree growth, with a bit of luck even the kingfisher await you on this canoe tour on the natural Löcknitz. You feel like you are in the jungle, you can surrender to the element of water while rocking gently and enjoy the different perspective. This late-riser tour at the gates of the big city is a real micro-adventure insider tip.

Your canoe experience:



  • Short journey: with the RE1 from Ostkreuz in just 20 minutes into nature near Grünheide, east of Berlin

  • Enchanted and wild: immerse yourself in the wild and romantic atmosphere of the Löcknitz river

  • Relaxing: "Here you can find peace, listen to the birds and hear the soul breathe." (Komoot user)

  • Rewarding: go for a swim in Werlsee or end the tour in the beer garden at Peetzsee

Start and finish: Grünheide. Funny's boat rental in the district of Gottesbrück or at the boat rental company in Grünheide
Length: up to 9 km / approx. 3-4 hours

  • Small round trip from Funny's on the Old and New Löcknitz around the Löcknitz Island: approx. 6.5 km
  • Big round trip from Funny´s to Werlsee and back: approx. 9 km
  • Any length of tour from Grünheide boat rental on the Peetz and Werl lakes

Getting there by public transport: RE1 to Fangschleuse station
Departure public transport: RE1 from Fangschleuse station



 







Relaxation as soon as you arrive

You get off the train and only a few hundred meters separate you from the entrance to the Löcknitztal. You can explore part of it yourself on the enchanted Löcknitz River. But before you embark on your canoe adventure, you can take a deep breath on a short stretch of the 66 Lakes Trail. This trail takes you in around 30 minutes from the Fangschleuse train station through the fragrant forest to the Gottesbrück district and directly to Frank Pfennig from Funny's boat rental. Frank comes from an old boat building family and is happy to lend you a canoe - kayak or canoe - and to give you tips for your tour.






 







Upstream or Downstream?

The Löcknitz is narrow, unspoilt and flat. Usually in a leisurely flow, it can sometimes flow faster here and there. Rotten trees that are overturned in the river, half grow in and hatch out of the water make your tour a real micro-adventure. Then it's time to maneuver, but don't worry, beginners can do that too! In some places you get the impression as if you are paddling in a meadow, the water is so clear and you can see fish and the lush green of the rich aquatic plants. Do you see the beaver castle and the kingfisher? The section upstream that you can drive to the next bridge is particularly wild and close to nature. Behind it is an absolute protection zone, where the “Amazon” then spreads further east.






 







Round trip around the Löcknitzinsel

You can start a recommended tour from Gottesbrück heading west. It goes meandering and varied on the motorboat-free Alten Löcknitz in a wonderful landscape: huge ferns, willows and alders on the shore, wild and beautiful. Do you dare to pass the 4 giant frogs? The stone statues on the frog bridge have been guarding the river since the 1930s. Finally the old one unites with the new Löcknitz and it goes back towards Gottesbrück. If you still have time, you can combine your tour with a detour to the Werlsee.






 







Relaxed atmosphere: Werl and Peetzsee

If you'd rather go for a leisurely hustle and bustle on the lake, borrow a Canadian from the boat rental at Peetzsee and explore the Peetz and Werl lakes with their beautiful bathing areas. Perhaps you will also circle the Lindwallinsel, also known as the island of love, which slumbers heart-shaped in the Werlsee. In the past it was a campsite, today it is more of a lost place and nature reserve.

If you are hungry from the tour, the small shipyard café by FUNNY'S offers you refreshments, a small snack and a selection of organic products from Friday to Sunday. Alternatively, you can end the day in the Heydewirth with an idyllic beer garden by the lake or in Il Borgo before heading back to the big city.

For your planning:


  • Make a reservation in advance at the rental stations!

  • Funny´s mainly rents out kayaks and a canoe. Tel. 03362 21386; Return until 7 p.m.

  • Bootsverleih Grünheide (boat rental) (online reservation for short trips 2.30 p.m. - 6.30 p.m., Canadians only) Return by 6.30 p.m.
  • Don't forget sunscreen and mosquito repellants!

Extra nature info:

  • With its natural bank structures stretching over 20 kilometers, formed by the freely meandering Löcknitz, the meadows and the adjacent mixed forests rich in flowering plants, the Löcknitztal offers you an ideal backdrop for relaxation. It is located in the Müggelspree-Löcknitzer forest and lake area. Around 1,400 animal and plant species as well as an extraordinary wealth of butterflies were counted here on the geo-tag of biodiversity. Including the endangered species of the violet and the great fire butterfly. In winter, when the surrounding lakes and bodies of water are frozen over, numerous birds use the Löcknitz Valley to forage. The particularly sensitive part is protected by the Löcknitztal nature reserve. (Naturschutzgebiet Löcknitztal)
  • On this late riser hiking tour (dieser Spätaufsteher-Wandertour) you can also discover the enchanted Löcknitz Valley from the land side!

Refreshment tips:


  • Grünheide: Heydewirt am Peetzsee, Il Borgo

  • Fangschleuse: Dionysus Greek restaurant at Bhf.
