The Spreewald area is a wild and romantic network of more than 1,575 kilometres of small rivers and canals, about 260 kilometres of which are navigable by canoe or boat. Its particular charm lies in the park-like landscape structure which is characterised by small meadows, fields, woods and numerous watercourses as well as the diversity of species it is home to.

Nautical information: exceptional water labyrinth, about 260 kilometres of navigable riverways. Observe nature conservation rules! In the core zone of the Spreewald you may not depart from the waterways or paddle down individual riverways; paddling is only allowed until 1 hour after sunset; no motorboats until Leibsch; Spreewald punts always have right of way; lots of branch-offs; numerous smaller manually operated locks, in some cases with boat hoists.
