Paddling in Stormarn

A paradise for paddlers: the river Trave in the North and the Bille in the South entice you to go for a paddle with your family, friends or colleagues. From the water you can enjoy that very special view of the countryside. And while the paddles glide rhythmically through the water, you can leave everyday life long behind.

Middle Trave

The river Trave is one of the four large canoeing areas in Schleswig-Holstein, some places flowing peacefully, others wildly through North Stormarn. The idyllic landscape along the river is the perfect place to go for a relaxing paddle in the canoe and enjoy nature. You will glide past Brenner Moor, the largest inland salt marshland in Schleswig-Holstein, and admire typical North and Baltic Sea flora, growing here due to the high salt content. The stretch of the river between Herrenmühle and Bad Oldesloe requires some experience to navigate and control your canoe. You should only go canoeing here in small groups.

Hire a canoe on the river Trave If you have not got your own canoe, rubber dinghy or your very own hand-carved log boat, simply hire a canoe. The Kanu-Center Lothar Krebs offers packages including a shuttle service and bike hire, so that you can end your tour where you started, or maybe continue your tour by bicycle.
