You want to escape the stressful & often noisy everyday life? Then get into a paddle boat. Experience the wild and romantic White Elster & follow its course from Berga/Elster to Wünschendorf. Enjoy the absolute freedom in nature. Paddling is more than just gliding on the water – it means being in harmony with nature, letting your soul dangle & recharging your batteries.
