The Mecklenburg Lake District consists of more than 1000 lakes, mostly interconnected, that invite you to a trip through nature and history. The banks of the waterways are lined with forests, meadows and swamps. Nature dominates the landscape, but the boater now finds a very well-developed infrastructure in the region. Plauer See, Fleesensee, Kölpinsee and the queen of all German lakes - the Müritz - form the Mecklenburgische Oberseen. Together with some smaller connecting lakes and canals they form the highest point of the water system, which flows over the Havel on the one hand and the Elde on the other hand to the Elbe. Each of these four lakes impresses with its majestic size, which is why the blue quartet at 62 meters above sea level is also called the Great Lakes Plateau. Since there are no locks and only a few bridges, it is an ideal sailing and houseboat area.
