Etappen

6-7 Tage

Stages: 6-7 days Hardly any other river in Germany is surrounded by so much wild nature as the Peene. On a length of about 96 km it meanders through fens, peat bogs, forests, floodplains and rarely through single villages. Every kilometer here becomes a nature experience - eye to eye with white-tailed eagles, kingfishers, otters and beavers.

The Peene meanders leisurely from Verchen to Anklam through a unique nature reserve and offers ample opportunities for nature observation. Water birds of all kinds populate the north of the Kummerower See. It is also worthwhile to take a look from the viewing platform in Aaalbude over the magnificent landscape, where thousands of migratory birds rest in spring and autumn.

About 10 kilometers downstream, the Trittelwitz waterway rest area lies idyllically in a tributary of the Peene. Beavers have their home in the immediate vicinity. Their bustling activity can be observed in the early morning or at dusk before one of the most beautiful sections of the Peene Valley begins. The canoe glides through largely untouched nature, past marshy meadows and watery peat bogs to Demmin. No village far and wide, only a pasture now and then. In Demmin, the Tollense and Trebel rivers flow into the Peene. The town is situated on a hill in the midst of beautiful nature - bushes, marshes and reeds wherever you look. And on it goes through the mysterious landscape, accompanied by sea eagles, kingfishers, beavers and otters.

Rustic resting places and bathing spots often invite you to take a leisurely break. Some surprises are offered by detours into one of the numerous tributaries of the Peene, such as the Swinow estuary with the remains of an old sawmill or a hike to the Gützkow orchid meadows. 8 km before the destination Anklam, the old Viking transhipment site Menzlin is located somewhat off the Peene. A beautiful conclusion of the tour is a panoramic view from the church Nikolaikirche in Anklam.

Water profile

Calm waters with low current and low gradient (30 cm). The Peene can therefore also be navigated upstream. No weirs, no transfer. Permitted for motorboat traffic.
