The Finow Canal is Germany's oldest canal.

Although it has been open again for some time, it is still something of a secret. It is never overly congested, even in summer.
The Finow Canal offers boating tourists unique views. Although it is a man-made waterway, the Finow Canal has over time become a part of nature.

Logbook entry: "You can find gloriously untouched nature along the Finow Canal."
What makes the Finow Canal unique are the monuments to early industrialisation that line its banks.

You can land, for example, at "Messingwerkhafen" and visit the settlement there.
