Canoe holidays on the river Trebel (hotel accomodation)
Paddling between two countries
Discover the beauty of the Trebel river valley on this 3-night paddle trip at the hotel. You paddle in a canoe or kayak along the natural and tranquil river and get to know the Hanseatic city of Demmin and the historic town of Nehringen with its impressive wooden bascule bridge.
You are on the road between two countries. But you will not find any customs stations or border markers. The 75-kilometer Trebel connects Mecklenburg and Western Pomerania. Huge blocks of ice created this area about 10,000 years ago. They left behind huge boulders and deep draws that make this river valley unique. The history of the region can be felt in Nehringen, where you stay overnight. After the end of the Thirty Years' War, it was Swedish for 100 years. Swedish governor Meyerfeld built one of the last baroque group of buildings in Western Pomerania, which is still standing today. The wooden bascule bridge over the Trebel is worth seeing, as is the castle tower, which dates back to the 14th century, and the ramparts from Pomerania's Swedish era.
Course of the journey
1st day: Relaxed arrival by train to 5 p.m. to Demmin, where you can expect a cozy double room in your hotel and exquisite regional cuisine.
Day 2: On the morning of the second day, your experienced tour guide will pick you up at the hotel at 10 a.m. and brings you and your equipment to the upper reaches of the Trebel, the start of your tour. From there, you'll experience your first paddle stage on the glacial river that seems to be forgotten by time. Your destination is Nehringen, a small, historical place worth a visit. In the late afternoon you will be transferred back to your hotel. You deposit your boat and the equipment at the youth hostel Nehringen.
3rd day: On this day you start your tour where you left the boat the day before: in Nehringen. From there you can paddle downstream to Demmin and experience the Trebeltal at its best. Visit the Hanseatic quarter on the Fischerinsel in Demmin or take a city tour with a visit to the imposing Bartholomew church. In the evening you are once again a guest of the hotel "Pommernland" and can end your paddle holiday with a good meal and a glass of red wine.
Day 4: After breakfast it is time to say goodbye. Train travelers can board the train directly in Demmin in the direction of Berlin or Stralsund. Car travelers can easily reach all directions via the A20.
