Dömitz, located in the border triangle of Brandenburg, Lower Saxony and Mecklenburg, is an ideal starting point for paddling tours. Because from here water hikers can start in several waters. For beginners and nature lovers, the Elde and Löcknitz are ideal, while experienced paddlers can explore the Elbe.
Nature lovers who want to get to know the biosphere reserve with its unique landscape from the water side will find Dömitz an ideal starting point for a paddling tour. This is because the small town is not only located on the Elbe River, but is also the gateway to the Müritz-Elde waterway. And as if that were not enough, there is a third, no less interesting route: the Löcknitz. This leads past the sand dunes of Klein Schmölen into neighboring Brandenburg.
If you don't have your own boat, you can rent one from the Dömitzer Kanu Verein. The club has existed since 1952 and offers its members the opportunity to actively engage in water sports. The club is run by recreational paddlers and does not impose any age restrictions. Its undertakings include mainly paddling trips on the surrounding waters, but also training camps and longer trips with camping excursions. In addition, the club operates its own canoe rental service for non-members and gives recommendations to non-local water hikers for a relaxing paddling trip with interesting impressions. The four decades of seclusion during the division of Germany have allowed many endangered species to retain their natural habitat here and are still native today.
