Bike Touring Highlight
After catastrophic floods in the area of the Havel area in the 18th and 19th centuries, an 11-kilometer-long canal with weir was built to build the backwater of the Havel, which has less gradient than the Elbe. There used to be some backwater with flooding to Rathenow.

The middle dike between the rivers Havel and Elbe, on the way from Havelberg to Gnevisdorf, offers one of the most beautiful panoramas that one can offer to his retina. In the fall, the gray geese gather on the dyke meadows and offer a beautiful natural spectacle during the sunset.

The Gnevsdorf receiving water was created because the Havel's low gradient has repeatedly caused devastating floods in the past. The weir regulates the water level in the receiving water. The weir is equipped with a fish ladder so that migratory fish such as trout can continue to get into the Havel.
