Schwielowsee is an nice lake south of Berlin. It´s definitely worth to paddle. The only thing you should have in mind, is that at the west waterside there´s the waterway. A lot of big motorboats gave us super high waves, which was definitely not funny. That´s why we decided to cross back to the calm east waterside.
The Attersee in Austria is really worth to paddle. Crystal clear blue water everywhere. We started our little trip at camping ground Grabner and did an one hour circle. But you can start easily everywhere. Cause there are a lot of planks. This lake is really worth to see.
