Embark on a boat trip through the chain of lakes between Berlin and Potsdam, encountering magnificent evidence of Prussian history. Experience a blend of culture, history, and the Havel landscape in the south-west of Berlin. Drive past natural banks and listed buildings through the former border area between the GDR and the West. Experience the Havel landscape, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, with magnificent parks, churches, and castles. Pass the Schildhorn, Berlin's largest landscape protection area – the Grunewald – and the Grunewald Tower, Villa Lemm, the Schwanenwerder peninsula, the Imcheninsel, one of Germany’s smallest nature reserves, and the Kladow harbor. Continue your journey across the Great Wannsee, past the Wannsee lido, Villa Lemm, the House of the Wannsee Conference, and Villa Liebermann. Glide past beautiful villas and gardens from the Great to the Little Wannsee, past the Pöhlesee and Stölpchensee. Move from Prinz-Friedrich-Leopold-Kanal to Griebnitzsee, reaching the Potsdam Havel. From the magnificent Babelsberg Palace and Park and Glienicke Palace, located directly on the water, sail under the Glienicke Bridge, the infamous “Agents Bridge”, and reach Lake Jungfernsee. From there, the boat tour takes you upstream past the Church of the Savior in the former border area between East and West and the fairytale Peacock Island with its pleasure palace and its historic buildings back to the Lindenufer.
