Lush green forests, numerous lakes and waterways and gently rolling hills characterise the Finowkanal region to the north-east of Berlin. The generously developed cycle paths, hiking trails and waterways offer ideal conditions for active recreation seekers.
The water-rich area also offers excellent recreational and leisure opportunities, especially for families.
Along the banks of the Finow Canal, a charming landscape of extensive marshes, grasslands and forests has developed. White stork, marsh harrier, grey heron, coot and moorhen and, with a bit of luck, even kingfisher, crane, black stork or the shy beaver and otter can be observed. The Finow Canal also connects the Schorfheide-Corin Biosphere Reserve with the Lower Oder Valley National Park.
To get in the mood for the impressive landscape of the Finow Canal region, we recommend the rbb documentary "Bilderbuch - Der Barnim" (esp. minute 10.30 - 25.30).
