    The Wakenitz (Slavic perch river) is a right tributary of the Trave in the southeast of Schleswig-Holstein, which drains the Ratzeburg Lake and is about 14.9 kilometers long. The Wakenitz is the natural outflow of the Ratzeburg lake. It leaves the lake at the northernmost point at Rothenhusen and runs in north-northwest direction to the urban area Lübeck. Until the construction of the Elbe-Lübeck Canal (1896-1900) Wakenitz the city hill and flowed south of Lübeck in the Trave. After the canal construction, the Wakenitz was closed off by a dam (Falkendamm) and drained u. a. over the Düker into the Krähenteich / mill pond. The Wakenitz forms the border between the federal states of Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern over long distances.

    Rothenhusen is a medieval customs post fortified by Lübeck in 1595 on a small island at the northern end of Lake Ratzeburg. Here the Wakenitz flows out of the lake.

    A new bridge over the Wakenitz has been created here since 2009. The "old bridge" was demolished in 2008. There has been a fortified customs post in Rothenhusen since the Middle Ages, which today serves as a restaurant on the small island in front.

    Thanks to its very clear water and biodiversity, the Wakenitz is always worth a tour.
