Sunday, Potsdam - Berlin
Transfer from Berlin, Intercontinental Hotel at 3.00pm to embark Serenité moored in Potsdam. This city’s most famous sight is the Sanssouci Castle with its Roman Baths, Orangerie and Chinese Teahouse and is the summer residence of Prussian King Frederick II. Champagne Welcome and introduction to the crew. We then cruise sail out of Potsdam to reach Berlin by the evening. During the cruise we pass by the Castle Babelsberg, housing the oldest film studios of the world and also Glienicker Bridge, which is the border line between East and West Germany where espionage agents and prisoner were exchanged during DDR (GDR)-times.
We then cross through Wannsee, which is Berlin’s largest recreational area. Once on the River Spre, we enter the centre of Berlin and provide you with an impressive sightseeing tour as we cruise by on Serenite, as most of the sights are situated along the river. We see the new and old government buildings (Reichstag), the island of museums, with the famous Pergamon Museum, The National gallery and the Berlin Dom, before we reach our mooring place close to the Brandenburg Gate and Berlin-Mitte, the new centre of town in the former eastern part. Time for a walk around town in the evening before dinner on board.
Monday, Berlin – Tegel-Oranienburg
After a morning of sightseeing in Berlin, we leave again on the River Spree, passing all the sights once more and cross another Berlin lake, the Tegeler See. We then change to the Oder-Havel-Kanal and find a quiet mooring place close to the town of Oranienburg. Dinner on board
Tuesday, Oranienburg – Mildenberg
After breakfast a short excursion can be made to Oranienburg to visit the newly renovated castle and its museum. Also close by is the memorial site of Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Join Serenité again in Liebenwalde and cruise on the River Havel to the small town of Zehdenick, where we will make a short stop for a walk in the afternoon. Then another hours cruising to the open-air brick museum and park, where we stay overnight and have a BBQ on deck if weather permits.
Wednesday, Mildenberg – Fürstenberg
After breakfast we start cruising the Havel and meander our way through the Schorfheide Nature Reserve. It is the day to sit on the top sun deck, just relax and watch the incredible scenery pass by. The nature is totally untouched and you can see plenty of different birds like king fishers, ospreys, herons, ducks and swans playing in carpets of water lilies that line the shore. During the day we pass by a fish farm, where you might want to pick your own fresh river trout for dinner. After crossing the Stolp Lake, we arrive in the town of Fürstenberg, just in time for a walking tour before dinner on board.
Thursday, Fürstenberg – Mirow
During breakfast we leave Fürstenberg on the river Steinhavel, which is leading us through a few lakes. Whenever someone says stop, we throw anchor in the middle of one of those lakes for a swim, straight off our ship’s swimming platform. Lunch is ashore in a typical German Brauhaus (Brewery) followed by an excursion to Rheinsberg, where we visit the Renaissance castle with romantic gardens situated right on the lake and immortalised by Kurt Tucholsky’s “Picture book for Lovers”. During the summer there is the Rheinsberg festival with many open-air classical concerts and plays. Back onboard in the small town of Mirow, we go out and anchor in the middle of a lake for a quiet nights sleep. Dinner on board.
Friday, Mirow – Waren
As we are now in the centre of the lake districts, we cruise all morning through many lakes that are connected by rivers and canals, until we reach the “ Small Müritz Lake”, leading into the Mürtiz, Germany’s second largest inland lake with a length of 28km and a width of 14 km. It takes approx 1½ hours to reach the Pearl of the Müritz, the town of Waren, where we will have a walking tour in the afternoon. We are moored right in the centre in the yacht harbour of Waren.
