Canoeing on the Werra is one unique possibility to actively enjoy nature. Cities and villages steeped in tradition, whilst also keeping in touch with the present, are nestled along the Werra valley. Discover the river and the countryside!
Quiet waters and a mild current make paddling on the Werra a special pleasure also for beginners and families. If the water level is high enough the river is accessible from Themar in South Thuringia to Hann. Münden. From Meiningen on it is possible to paddle down the Werra nearly all year round. In total the river offers more than 200 kilometres of waterways. Jetties at most towns along the way and facilities to carry your canoe around barrages allow you to go ashore whenever you like. For your convenience you will find information boards and maps at every jetty. The best way to get to know the river is with a boat rental or tour company before you explore the river on your own. The company ‘Pfannstiel Outdoor’ offers guided paddle tours and canoe and boat hire.
