The Mecklenburg Lake District consists of more than 1,000, mostly interconnected lakes that invite you to a trip through nature and history. The banks of the waterways are lined with forests, meadows and marshes. Nature dominates the landscape, while the boatman takes now a very well-developed infrastructure in the region. Plauer See, Fleesensee, Kölpinsee and the queen of all German lakes - the Müritz - form the Mecklenburg Upper Lakes. Along with some smaller connecting lakes and channels they form the highest point of the water system, the other part flows over the Havel on the one hand and the Elde to the Elbe. Each of these four lakes impressed by its majestic size, so the blue quartet named in 62 meters above sea level, large lakes. Since there are no locks and few bridges here, it is an ideal sailing and houseboat area.
