Full description
Begin at the picturesque city harbor, Stadthafen Leipzig. There, you'll meet your licensed guide who will make sure you’re totally prepped for the tour, briefing you on paddling techniques and safety procedures.

Pass the magnificent villa of publishing family, Baedeker, onto the Palmengartenwehr, which is not only a technological monument but an important facet of Leipzig’s public flood protection facilities. Paddle past the city’s largest park and the 1867 racecourse Scheibenholz. If you’re lucky, you’ll meet Tina Dietze on the water — the world and Olympic kayaking champion, who is based at the Olympic Training Center Leipzig. Continuing, you’ll reach the Leipzig Canoe-Club, home to the canoe world champion Franz Anton.

Before cruising onto the neighboring stream that guides you back to the city, take a minute to relax at the cosy port and then head back through Leipzig’s imposing historic industrial buildings to Stadthafen Leipzig. Enjoy a beer at the bar and watch the canoes and paddlers drift through the water at the end of your magical tour.
