Canoeing in Hessen

Explore Hessen by water

With hundreds of kilometres of waterways flowing through its urban and rural landscapes, why not explore Hessen by boat?

Many of the streams and rivers are accessible by canoe, coursing through picturesque conservation areas and nature reserves, passing through charming towns and villages and leading you past historic sights. There are both gentle, unobstructed stretches of river to float down as well as more challenging sections with rapids and weirs. Canoeing is a fun way to see Hessen from a different perspective, whether you’re an inexperienced beginner or seasoned canoer!
