The Dahme River Southeast of Berlin lies a landscape of canals and lakes. The Dahme River flows into the River Spree in Köpenick, and in the south the Dahme connects a series of lakes. You sail past the green shores of Lake Zeuthen and Lake Sellzug, the places where German history was written (Königs-Wusterhausen Castle). At Prieros, each crew has to choose whether to the right into the calm still waters at Teupitz or to the left towards Storkow, along the canals decorated withwater lilies, to the "Sea of Mecklenburg", Lake Scharmützel, where the spa services of Bad Saarow can be enjoyed. The third option is to sail directly, further down the Dahme River to Buchholz in the Marche. After the reunification of Germany, interest in the waterway area south of Berlin is experiencing an unprecedented rise. You do not need a boat licence to sail in this area. However, it is not possible to sail on this route with vetus boats.
