The waters around Fürstenberg/Havel and the Upper Havel federal waterway with its connection to the Havel town of Zehdenick offer a variety of possibilities and are a popular spot among water hikers. For example, the old town of Fürstenberg can be circumnavigated on the Havel's tributaries. If you want to travel longer distances or in stages, you can head north along the Mecklenburg Lake District to the Müritz or along the Havel past Himmelpfort and Bredereiche to Berlin.
A special highlight is the fish-canoe pass, which makes it easier for fishers and paddlers to cross from the Gänsehavel into the Priesterhavel. The passage is like a slide under an old building. In the opposite direction, the boat is simply towed.
On the Priest Havel, just a few metres from the town centre, the Wasserwanderrastplatz invites you to linger. There is enough space for camping, public toilets and a "shelf" for the boats where they can be safely stowed and connected. Other rest areas for water walkers are located on the Havel in Steinförde and in the Himmelpfort district of Pian.
Those who want to try the adventure of water hiking will find various types of boats at the local rental shop, which can be booked for tours lasting one or several days.
