Canoe touring, a waterborne tourist tradition that stretches back over 150 years, through the water city of Leipzig, guarantees hours of fun. A sluice even makes it possible to paddle to Lake Cospuden. The tourist waterway network makes it possible by connecting the flowing waters with the surrounding region's wealth of lakes, i.e. the Leipzig New Lake District. The Leipzig New Lake District's first network of lakes - Lakes Markkleeberg and Störmthal - can also be easily and enjoyably discovered by means of a canoe tour.

Dinghy rides along the Mulde near Rochlitz, Grimma and Eilenburg are best for families. The banks of the Mulde are bordered by splendid fortresses and castles, idyllic Auen landscapes, and impressive canyons.

Simply rent a boat from one of the many rental depots or bring your own canoe with you, and sail away.
