Water is the dominant theme in the island city of Ratzeburg. Because its center lies on an island, surrounded by 4 lakes: the large Ratzeburg lake, the large kitchen lake, the small kitchen lake and the Domsee. The beech forests of the Lauenburg Lakes Nature Park reach right up to the banks and offer the city an impressive backdrop. Hiking and biking trails lead around the island and the lakes around, bathing and rest areas are everywhere, in short: everything is there for activity and rest.A special view of the cathedral catch all those who look at it from the water. With the tour boat or the pedalo, with the electric or rowboat can be circumnavigated the island city. The water and the water sports belong to the city like the lion to the cathedral: here Karl Adam once trained the rower of Ratzeburg and brought home Olympic gold. The Rowing Academy is still an institution.
