Historic Walking Area
The Landwehr Canal, or Landwehrkanal in German, is a 10.7km long canal parallel to the Spree river in Berlin, Germany, built between 1845 and 1850 according to plans by Peter Joseph Lenné. It connects the upper part of the Spree at the Osthafen (Eastern Harbour) in Friedrichshain with its lower part in Charlottenburg, flowing through Kreuzberg and Tiergarten.Lenné designed a canal with sloped walls, an average width of 20m at the surface and locks near both ends to control the water depth. In the course of two enlargements (1883–1890 and 1936–1941), it reached a breadth of 22m and a depth of 2m. Today the waterway is mainly used by tourist boats and pleasure craft.The Landwehr Canal leaves the Spree River in the Osthafen (Eastern Harbour) in Friedrichshain, east of the city centre. It immediately descends through the Schleusenufer (Upper Lock) and heads in a straight line south west to its junction with the Neukölln Ship Canal, which provides a connection to the Teltow Canal. Here the Landwehr Canal turns north west through Kreuzberg, along the Paul-Lincke-Ufer

  • You can take splendid savings ornamental course at the Landwehrkanal. E.G. by going to the "Fraenkelufer" along. Here you will the Orthodox synagogue in the neo-classical style by which has been beautifully restored. On the road stands a billboard that tells the story of the synagogue. A little further to get to the Admiral's bridge. Here meet musicians, students, holidaymakers and tourists in the summer and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere to guitar sounds. You can also paddle on the Landwehr Canal, you can book a trip or have a picnic on the shore, drink a bottle of wine or go to one of the many nice restaurants close to the channel.

  • This location is quite close to the Center, but even so it's quiet and pleasant, you can stroll along the promenade, admiring the architecture, a ship and a large cluster of swans:)

  • This channel separates the districts of Kreuzberg and Neukölln. Walking along its banks is of the best things you can do in Berlin if you have time and want to know something more than the typical tourist sites. Several days a week put a very charismatic Turkish market on Maybachufer shore (I remember it's Tuesday and Friday from the morning until 18 h.), also a Sunday in two there is a Flohmarkt, with many interesting and not as saturated as others posts. The area is full of bars and restaurants and places where you can drink a beer calmly watching the channel. There are also several points for sport along the canal. It is a wonderful place where you can easily forget large and noisy which can be Berlin.
