Secret Waterways of Germany

Sail through the Dutch provinces of Friesland and Groningen before enjoying a leisurely journey along the lesser-explored waterways of Germany, navigating canals and rivers that larger vessels can't. Sail from Amsterdam along the Ijsselmeer to Lemmer. The Princess Margriet canal, leads the way to the lively university city of Groningen often referred to as the 'Metropolis of the North'. The Grote Markt square with Gothic Martini Tower next to the Martini Church, contrast with the quirky, ultra modern Groninger Museum of Art. Cross the border to Herbrum and continue to Oldenburg. Explore the Hanseatic city of Bremen, including St Peter's Cathedral, the 15th-century UNESCO-listed town hall, the Schnoor quarter and bohemian area, with quirky shops, galleries and museums. The picturesque city of Nienburg, on the River Weser has an array of half-timbered buildings, a pretty statue of the city symbol ‘the Little Nienburg’ and even an Asparagus Museum! Negotiate the Schachtscleuse lock to the Midland Canal, Germany's longest artificial waterway to Hanover and see the Harz Mountains, northern Germany's highest range. From Scharnebeck perhaps visit the romantic city of Lüneburg, a picturesque Hanseatic town, once a trade hub thanks to its lucrative salt mines and then on to Geesthacht. The modern and dynamic city of Hamburg has a rich maritime heritage stemming from its bustling sea port. A vibrant home to art and culture, extensive shopping facilities, baroque buildings and waterfront vistas. There's also a vast network of canals crossed by more bridges than any other city in the world, a perfect place to end your journey.
