Having left the Rhine river, we entered the Mittelland canal, a stretch of waterway that crosses most of Germany with only 3 locks. The canal is not exactly scenic, especially in the rain. At Potsdam the skies cleared and we anchor in the lake for a BBQ.

The last page of the route from Nancy some 1200 Kms

Glenicker bridge was the site of  spy swaps during the cold war

A series of lakes lead us to Spandau where we join the Berlin waterways, and a spectacular entry into Berlin
A spectacular entrance to an amazing city.

The picture says it all

The Wall was here, right alongside the waterway.
