Getting fresh air, enjoying nature, and experiencing Potsdam’s amazing surroundings at their most beautiful – these are all really good reasons for setting sail. But if on top of that all waterways are »paved« with musical surprises, a truly memorable Sunday beckons. Ever changing sounds from baroque to modern accompany and surround the paddlers on their journey until finally everyone gets together for the big closing concert with Rameau’s »Les Boréades« in front of Caputh Palace.
Length: 3 hours, with max. 2 hours paddling. We recommend weather appropriate clothing and shoes that can get wet,as well as a small snack for those peckish moments in between. Children aged 6 years and older can come along.
Our partner Windsurfing Potsdam has 2-person kayaks, 3-person or 4-person canoes ready for you until 12.6. (17 € p.p., not included in the ticket price). On your ticket you will find a booking code, with which you can book your place directly at wassersportpotsdam.de/booking-music-canoe (allocation of places in the boats is done by the rental company).
