Mecklenburg East from Furstenburg

Boat for 4 x guests in 2 x double cabins with ensuites. (space for 2 x guests sleeping in living area)

Between Mecklenburg and Brandenburg, in the heart of a thousand lakes,discover nature at its finest in an area known as "Blue Paradise".

The Nicols Boat base in Fürstenberg is located at the crossroads of two regions: north-west is Mecklenburg with its 1000 lakes while in the south-east is Brandenburg towards Berlin. Choose from a number of different cruising itineraries ranging from a couple of days in length up to two week holidays.

A natural paradise: the landscapes and greenery between the lakes, rivers and canals are stunning and you’ll discover an abundance of flora and fauna. Bird-watchers should head to Lake Müritz and look out for eagles, cormorants, cranes and osprey. Take a dip: if you like swimming then the clear waters of the lakes in this fascinating region is ideal. The water quality is up there with the best in Europe – at certain times of the year the water is clear enough for vision down to 12 metres deep – so perfect for underwater photos and spotting fish!

Rich historical heritage: your boating holiday leads you to some fine treasures of the past! Towards Mecklenburg (north-west) you will find Rheinsberg and its castle, the curious lakeside houses with thatched roofs of Mirow, Röbel and its half-timbered houses, Waren and the "Müritzeum" - a visitor centre for the Müritz National Park. Alternatively if you head towards Brandenburg (south-east) you’ll reach Himmelpfort which is known as the capital of fishing (try the local specialty of smoked fish) and hometown of Santa Claus, before then reaching the charming little walled town of Templin.
