Why take this tour?

The tour starts in the city harbor Leipzig. We are located within walking distance of the city center and are the perfect starting point for exploration tours due to our central location in the Leipzig water system. Once you arrive, you will meet your guide and get a detailed introduction to paddle technology and safety aspects. From the city harbor we drive past the villa of the famous publisher family Baedeker and the imposing Palmgarten weir on the Elsterflutbett. Passing Leipzig's largest park, the Clara Zetkin Park, we drive to the racecourse in Scheibenholz. After the Leipzig corner we follow the Pleißeflutbett to the lock Connewitz. After being paddled by the Pleiße in the raft ditch, this leads us through untouched nature to the forest lake Lauer. With a bit of luck, a glimpse of the kingfisher can be found here. After the lock Cospuden we finally reach our destination: the Cospudener See.
