Landwehrkanal, Berlin

4.6
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

  • Lots of tours are available to see Berlin by boat. Very pleasant way to spend a large part of your day. This canal is lovely, lots of trees. Also good for a walk.  more »
  • Who makes one of the usual boat tours through Berlin, which passes over the river Spree with its Government buildings, the Museum Island, maybe up to the Oberbaumbrücke bridge and the East Side Gallery - this is the range in which you can see much. The way back across the Landwehr Canal, on whose shores always Sun and Lufthungrige stop is much comfortable, but not less attractive. There are well-maintained town houses, but also new. On this route it is necessary by the upper and lower lock and the mill dam sluice.

  • Whenever I come back to Berlin, I never miss to take a short walk along the Landwehrkanal. Another look at the city, the nonchalance of the channel barely troubled by a few paddlers, even cyclists are less aggressive. It can even be a little cruise that will make you do a little unexpected tour of Berlin. And did you know, there are 3 times as many bridges in Berlin (more than 1500) than Venice! Well, but for now, we see more paddles as gondolas on the Landwehrkanal and the Spree!
