Daytrip to the Spreewald

One of the most popular activities during excursions to the Spreewald is a traditional punt trip with lard sandwiches and Spreewald gherkins.

The Spreewald is located about 70 kilometres southeast of Berlin. With its lagoon-like river landscape and a network of 970 km of flowing waters, it is considered unique in Europe. As a biosphere reserve, the Spreewald is protected by UNESCO. The most popular and easiest way to explore the Spreewald is with a barge trip.

The barge season in the Spreewald usually starts in April and lasts until October. During the peak season, the barges depart every hour. Most punt trips last about two to three hours, so they can easily be done as part of a weekend excursion. However, the barges are not only important for excursionists, but are still used by the inhabitants of the Spreewald, for the way to work or for shopping. Historically, the barges served in this water labyrinth as a means of transport for goods, livestock and also as a postal vehicle.

Barges start from many places in the Spreewald, for example from Burg, Lehde, Lübbenau or Lübben. In Lübben, especially families with children get their money’s worth, because there is also a climbing forest and a hill labyrinth, whose visit can be combined with an adventure boat trip.
