First, we would like to tell you about sailing at Lake Steinhuder Meer, because traditionally it is one of the most important sailing sites in Germany and has been used for sailing for more than a hundred years. The first yacht club was founded in 1906. Today, there are more than twenty sailing clubs at Lake Steinhuder Meer and more than a thousand boats in docks in the summer. Guests can bring their own boats and tie them to one of the many docks, or they can rent a boat from one of the boat rentals in Steinhude or Mardorf. The water offers enough room for beginners and professional sailors. Each season, an average of 40 regattas take place.
