South of Leipzig, in the middle of the Leipzig New Lake District, is the Markkleeberg Canoe park – Germany's most exciting attraction for white-water fun.
At the Markkleeberg Canoe Park, adventurers can feel the power of the water up close! White-water rafting invites anyone over the age of 12 to traverse the rapids in a dinghy.
All equipment – such as neoprene clothing, life jackets and safety helmets – is available on-site. After an initial briefing, participants run though their first paddle exercises in the target pool, and then the action can really get started as groups enter the white-water section. Conquer the rapids and rollers of the canoe park as a team – adrenaline shot included free.
Other adventurous highlights are:
- duo and power rafting,
- hydro speed,
- white-water kayaking,
- wave surfing.
For those who prefer to take things a bit easier, the Kanupark also offers dragon boatrides and a boat rental service. There is a playground for the little ones, and food can also be purchased on location. The white-water terrace in the Kanupark lets guests take in the sights and enjoy the view over Lake Markkleeberg.
Rafting offers are also available for people with disabilities by prior telephone arrangement.
The cash desk, information, panoramic terrace and "KANU Wildwasser-Terrasse" restaurant are disability accessible. The terrace offers a great view of the white-water park.
All explanations and safety instructions are available to people with hearing disabilities in sign language.
