Klink: enjoy dinner at the castle and shopping at a farmer's market
Add a stop-off at the town of Klink to your boating holiday itinerary – you’ll know you’re there when you spot the imposing castle on the shores of Lake Müritz. This neo-Renaissance castle at Klink was built in 1898 by the von Schnitzler family, modelled on their love of the French castles of the Loire region. After extensive renovations in 1998, the castle is now used as a hotel with an adjoining restaurant where you can enjoy an excellent dining experience with fine seasonal and regional dishes – all served with a view over Lake Müritz.
Whilst at Klink you can also visit the popular Müritz Farmer's Market where you’ll find traders selling regional items and handicrafts and souvenir shops. There is also a choice of restaurants with many serving menus of fresh fish caught from Lake Müritz.
Mirow: an idyllic lakeside location
Located on the southern shore of Lake Mirow you will find the peaceful town of Mirow. Visitors will find traditional lakeside houses with thatched roofs as well as the picturesque Castle Mirow and Castle Island (also known as Love Island). The former residence of the Dukes of Mecklenburg can also be visited.
Rheinsberg: enjoy castle views from the deck of your canal barge
From your canal boat you will enjoy the most romantic view of the iconic Rococo-style Rheinsberg Castle on the banks of the Grienericksee. The turrets of this former residence of Frederick II of Prussia are reflected in the lake. Enjoy a stop in the cultural capital of northern Brandenburg to discover also its traditional ceramics factory, its annual pottery market and the many summer festivals organised in the castle and its park.
Fürstenberg: impressive lakes, a castle and a history of porcelain manufacture
The historic city of Fürstenberg is a great place for a boating holiday base – not only is it crossed by the Havel River but it is also surrounded by the lakes of Röblinsee and Schwedtsee. There are lots of places of interest in Fürstenberg so we recommend spending some time here before setting sail (or at the end of your boating holiday). A visit to the castle introduces the city’s porcelain manufacturing history via the ‘Porzellan Museum’.
