Experience Boundless Freedom on the Water

Experience boundless freedom on the water - not only in the Mecklenburg Lake District

Just hop on and set off, even without a boating license, and drift carefree towards the sunset in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, surrounded by idyllic scenery. Watch beavers and kingfishers on the shore or sea eagles and ospreys circling in the air and become one with nature. From relaxed discovery tours on the Peene, the Schwerin Lake District, to unforgettable adventures in the Mecklenburg Lake District.

Houseboat and raft hire without a license 

A wide variety of houseboats and rafts are available for hire from charter companies in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. A distinction is made between a typical houseboat, bungalow boat, raft or even a sauna houseboat. Out and about as a couple, with family or with friends, the boats offer plenty of space, even for groups. And no motorboat license is required to charter one of the modern rafts or houseboats.

Anybody over the age of 18 can obtain a charter license directly from the provider on site after an introduction. This means that nothing stands in the way of adventures on rivers and lakes in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

If you would like to take your dog on a tour, you can enquire directly with the provider and find the right houseboat or raft for you.

Vacation On and By the Water

Inspiration to read more in the vacation magazine

Houseboat or Raft?

Huckleberry Finn feeling or rather a little more luxury on the water? That's where raft and houseboat essentially differ. If you want to have your vacation apartment with you, you can opt for a houseboat with a shower, refrigerator and a warm bed. The small floating vacation homes are modernly equipped with kitchen, toilet as well as heating and provide the best vacation feeling on cold nights.

Adventurers love the feeling of freedom on a raft and the fresh wind blowing through the cab. Families with young children may favor a houseboat vacation more, while younger couples often gravitate toward a raft vacation.

The Best Spots for a Raft and Houseboat Vacation in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

The Lake District is the ideal area for vacations on the water. Together with Fleesensee, Kölpinsee and Plauer See, the Müritz, also known as the Little Sea, brings boaters over 180 square kilometers of water under the keel. Popular with nature lovers is a tour on the Amazon of the North - the Peene - starting in Demmin, Loitz or Anklam. The unique "Great Round Trip" even stretches from the metropolis of Berlin, through Brandenburg to the state capital Schwerin in the north. Across huge, clear lakes and along the Havel, the Müritz-Elde waterway and the Störkanal, it leads through charming landscapes and fascinating cities. Most of the inland waters can be navigated without a license, after a short instruction.

Modern marinas and sport boat harbors offer well-equipped moorings. One of the most beautiful things you can experience during your boating vacations and should not miss is spending the night at anchor in the middle of nature in a bay.

On the move for days and weeks in Germany's lakeland - the Great Round Trip is a route full of contrasts, covering 570 kilometers. On the tour, recreational skippers roam through two German states and three capital cities by houseboat. For the most part, the tour does not require a boating license and is best navigated in a clockwise direction., © TMV/Gänsicke

Free Ride for Leisure Captains

Raft and Houseboat Tours

In Germany's lakeland, recreational captains enjoy free sailing. On many waterways, you need neither driving experience nor a driver's license, just a charter certificate.

Out On the Water, Into the Fun

Anyone can be a houseboat captain. The motto is: Get out of the city with friends, into nature. Away from the noise, into the silence. A little escape from everyday life. And should one of the friends need some distance: Stand-up paddleboards or a canoe also fit on the boat for extra trips. If you want to be active on land, you can take your bike on board or rent one on site. Just dock and start cycling.

On the board, in the water or on the sun deck? So much water, so many possibilities. And one thing is for sure: The evening is one of the most beautiful moments on the houseboat or raft. When the sun slowly sets, the wind dies down, the air feels like velvet and the grill sizzles with freshly caught fish . Sounds like a perfect summer day.

Autumn and winter are also ideal for quiet boating vacations and on cold days the sauna houseboat is an absolute insider's tip. So, just rent a houseboat or raft, weigh anchor and enjoy the great freedom in the Lake District.

Build a Raft Yourself

Let yourself drift in the golden summer sun - with a little imagination even back to your own childhood. From the original "build your own", to outdoor discovery tours and relaxed enjoyment of nature, everything is included in your raft wonder bag: In smiling memory of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, you'll get to work on the logs and build your own raft for a perfect rafting adventure.

However, you don't have to gather wood in the wild in the forest, because you can book the ready-to-go package with many providers. It sounds a bit like building an IKEA shelf, but that's exactly what it is: four screws, four straps, and lots of fun on your adventure cruise. You'll explore the Mecklenburg Lake District, the Müritz-Elde waterway, the Sternberg Lake District, the Recknitz and the Peene.
