The Mecklenburg Lake District, north of Berlin, is Europe's largest area of interconnected lakes. A voyage of discovery along Germany's most beautiful waterways.

The Mecklenburg Lake Plateau is Europe’s largest area of interconnected lakes and waterways. The “Land of a Thousand Lakes”, as it is known, is a region of superlatives: Müritz is the largest lake located entirely within Germany and the heart of the region, the Feldberg lakes are famous for their crystal-clear water, and Tollensesee is considered the most stunning lake in the region. Müritz National Park is home to sea eagles, storks and wolves, and its beech forest has been designated a World Heritage Site. Thousands of cranes stop to rest in the unspoilt moorland every year on their long journey south. Magnificent country estates, medieval inland port towns and rustic villages with their colourful boathouses bear witness to centuries of waterfront culture. Shepherds, farmers and fishermen live in harmony with the stunning natural environment which they do their utmost to preserve. Artists come here to find inspiration for their work. The wild, sparsely populated region stretches from the source of the river Havel between Berlin and Rostock, to the Peene Delta at Lake Kummerow, the Amazon of the north. From here, you can follow the current all the way to the Baltic Sea. A voyage of discovery along Germany's most beautiful waterways.
