Those who want to get to know untouched and calm nature, far away from the busy inland-waterways of Germany and who ideally already have some boating-experience, will find exactly what they are looking for on the Berlin-Oder-Round-Trip.
This round trip is an interesting mix of the metropolis Berlin and the mostly calm and untouched, natural rivers, the Polish neighbor east of the Oder, impressive monuments of the industrial history, like the ship lift Niederfinow and the Finowkanal, Germany’s oldest, still shippable canal and a multitude of interesting towns, that are worth a shore leave, like Fürstenwalde, Eisenhüttenstadt, Frankfurt (Oder), Eberswalde or Oranienburg. Those, amongst many more reasons, are why the Berlin-Oder-Round-Trip is an unique cruise experience. It is also worth mentioning, that this trip has a lot of possibilities to visit other nearby waterways and waters (as shown on the map below) and also many cycle paths along the tour. Here are some places, where you can rent bicycles.
