The leisurely Tour

Your view glides over the landscape on the banks of the “Trave”.
If you do get lost gazing over the beautiful landscapes, there is absolutely no danger. This route is completely safe, even if you do not pay attention to the course: The current lets you float slowly. A small amount of villages are located directly on the Trave.
Paddocks and meadows with grazing cows line the banks towards Lübeck.
Notice : Shortly before the Hanseatic city it suddenly becomes a maritime area: the last part of Trave and the Elbe-Lübeck Canal run together in a riverbed.
So if you like you can have a race with the river boat.
But beware: the barrels in the water rise the canoe like a magnet.
Always paddle well outside the marked waterway.

Guesthouse in Klein Wesenberg

The entry point in Bad Oldesloe next to the tax office / police is easy to reach by public transport. After you cross over with the canoes at the bed pitch, the Trave gets the character of a leisurely meadow river. Some hill ranges line the paddle route to Wesenberg (14 km) or to Hamberge (+ 3 km). Shortly before Lübeck (+11 km) the river is characterized by a maritime character. From August herbaceous stems can hinder the tour – crossing over is necessary!
