In addition to action-packed whitewater fun at the well-known Canoe Park Markkleeberg, sailing, diving, surfing or climbing are also possible, as is relaxing while swimming in the crystal-clear water or boating. Part of the route runs along the 14 km-long geological trail, whose 16 info points are centered around the stone experience site near the canoe park lock.
