Landwehrkanal of Kreuzberg



By paddling with a rubber dinghy on the Landwehrkanal you can enjoy Berlin from a unique perspective. There are many places where you can embark with your boat (e.g. Ankerklause). And if you don't want to paddle you can just relax riverside. At Paul-Lincke-Ufer you can also play bocce.
