Even landlubbers may get on the water without their own boat. Rides on a passenger ship are particularly relaxing – they start or finish in Werder (Havel).
If you don't wish to sail across the river Havel yourself, you may let others take the wheel. There are many shipping companies between Berlin, Potsdam, and Brandenburg an der Havel that are experts in trips by passenger ship. From the classic round trip over the Havel Lakes to city tours as well as romantic night trips or dance evenings – there's something for everyone. You may even get married on the MS Bismarckhöhe in Werder.
Werder (Havel) is currently served by four shipping companies. Each of these companies has jetties on the island, in the historic Old Town of Werder. The shipping companies will take you to the lakes Zernsee, Schwielowsee, Glindowsee, and Templiner See, to Potsdam or Berlin, to the island Pfaueninsel or on a boat trip around Lake Wannsee.
