Discover Germany's lakes - houseboat holidays with charm

About a third of Germans spend their holidays in their home country and the trend is rising. But many tourists have also discovered the beauty of Germany outside the country. German lakes in particular seem to be in vogue. There are plenty of reasons for this. After all, not only can you swim in the lakes as you please, but it is also possible to engage in various activities. For example, water skiing, diving and fishing are popular. The real highlight, however, are boats - especially the spacious houseboats. Nothing is more suitable for group travellers or families to spend a relaxing holiday on Germany's lakes. Want to find out more? Then just read on.

Ways to rent a houseboat

Renting boats is not allowed on all lakes.

In some cases boats are not even allowed to sail. However, where it is allowed, renting a boat is fairly straightforward. Boat rentals are usually well visible near the shore. Holidaymakers will therefore quickly find what they are looking for. Those who rent a boat directly on site can inspect the respective objects and then make a decision. In addition, a personal consultation (for example, on safety issues) is possible.But a booking via the Internet also has its advantages. Boat rental portals such as Nautall offer a wide selection. This means that different offers can be compared with each other. In addition, you can see what is available at which lakes.

At the Mecklenburg Lake District, for example, there are particularly nice houseboats. The lakes in Berlin, Brandenburg and the surrounding area, on the other hand, are a real insider tip for yachts. Another advantage is that one is spared possible complications on site. Many tourists therefore decide to book via the Internet, as they want to approach their holiday as stress-free as possible.

These lakes are always worth a visit

Those who want to spend a relaxing holiday on a houseboat should tackle the Müritz-Elde waterway. It is 120 kilometres long and offers beautiful towns, wide meadows, rustic marshes and wonderfully green forests. So there is plenty of variety. A little longer? Then the Berlin-Oder circuit is the right thing to do. On 340 kilometres there is a lot to discover. Especially friends of monuments will get their money's worth.

There are plenty of them on the Berlin-Oder-Umfahrt. In addition, Germany's oldest canal is located here. At least the oldest one that is still navigable. In Brandenburg's north lies a jewel that is appreciated by houseboat and yacht captains all over the world - the Ruppiner Seenland. Here, one lake practically follows the other. In addition, there is a wooded landscape that is worth seeing through and through. Culture lovers also get their money's worth in the Ruppiner Seenland. There are many places to moor that are home to some cultural treasures. Since a tour in the Ruppiner Seenland can last a good week, you have plenty of time to relax and discover new things.

But also the small lakes at the Mecklenburg Lake District are wonderfully suitable for a visit. If you want to discover a distinctive flora and fauna, this is exactly the right place. So don't waste any time, but discover the beauty of Germany's lakes.
