Fürstenberg/ Havel

It is Germany’s only “water town”: the town centre of Fürstenberg/Havel is picturesquely situated on islands between three beautiful and clean bathing lakes and snuggled up on the Havel. Attractions include the Fisch-Kanu-Pass – a water slide for paddlers, the Havelpark with its railway ferry monument and fitness trail, as well as the market square ensemble with its neo-Gothic town church. A visit to the Ravensbrück Memorial is also worthwhile.
