Lehde is a charming little village in the Spreewald south of Berlin, which is a very special river landscape with a network of 970 kilometers of streams, forests and small islands. Lehde is like Venice located on the water and is surrounded by canals. The boat was therefore, just like in Venice, one of the most important means of transportation for the inhabitants.
