From Mölln to Maastricht

There are many old houses like these in Mölln.


Mölln is a nice small town with a lot of old houses. New houses are usually built to fit well in.

Mindener Yacht-Clubs Hahler hafen

Minden is a big center for barges sailing all over Europe. The old town lies were the Mittelland kanal crosses the Weser river. It's an old town, but there are very few landingplaces for pleasureboats near the town center. The harbour we used is located some kilometers west of the city.
The night we visited this harbour there were guestboats here from Sweden, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, UK and Russia!

Osnabrück Motor Yacht Clubs harbour in the Osnabrück Side Canal

Great service in a great harbour! We got diesel delivered to the boat at the same price as at the pump!
It is a very quiet harbour as long as the guests don't stay too long in the bar!

Marina Alte Fahrt Fuestrup

A very nice and peaceful harbour in a sidearm of the Dortmund-Ems Canal. Full service for boats and mobile homes.
