A journey through Mark Brandenburg
On its northern stretch, Dahme is part of the Spree-Oder waterway which connects the south of Berlin with the Oder. After Schmöckwitz it parts away to the south. Navigation passes first of all the Zeutherner See, gets then again onto the Dahme, passing the lock Neue Mühle and continuing to the Krüpelsee. This is followed by Dolgensee and finally by the small Streganzer See. Unfortunately the small stretch from Märkisch Buchholz to the east and the Spree is not navigable anymore and therefore anticipates a round trip.
If one takes, coming from Berlin, at Prieros the branch to the right hand side, one gets into the waters of Teupitz. Which are the following lakes: Schmöldesee, Hölzernersee, Kleiner Körisersee, Kleiner and Grosser Moddersee, Schulzensee, Schweriner See and Teupitzersee with the well known places of Gross Köris, Schwerin and Teupitz.
These turn off the Dahme at the northern edge of Prieros. The waterway crosses first the Langer See then Storkower Kanal, the Grossen Storkower See and finally the Scharmützelsee, passing the places of Wolzig, Kummersdorf, Storkow, Wendisch Rietz, Dienstorf-Radlof, Pieskow and Dorf Saarow to the northern end of Scharmützelsee at Bad Sarro-Mitte. Most of these places have a marina with electricity and fresh water.
