Germany - moving around the country
The territory of Germany has navigable routes; their length is about 7 000 km. The basins of the Rhine and the Danube are interconnected by the Main channel. Thanks to the river channels, it is easy to get from one region of the country to another and to cruise along major ports, while enjoying the delightful scenery. Boats regularly run along the canals. In Berlin, you can even use the services of a boat taxi that runs along the river Spree. The ferry can be reached from the port of Puttgarden to Warnemunde. An alternative for a traveler is to rent a bicycle. Since 2002, Germans actively began to develop cycling, so there are special lanes for two-wheeled vehicles even in small provinces. There are parking lots for bicycles; rental points are located practically in every district of any city.
Nature and parks of Germany
Another northern national park is the Pomeranian lagoon located off the coast of the Baltic Sea. This is a very picturesque place with a rich animal and green worlds and a complex terrain. Wild boars, deer, otters, roe deer, mouflon, and various small mammals live in the park. Fans of animals can get unique impressions in the Eifel Park, in the west of the country. There are about 900 representatives of animals included in the red book. Among them, a black stork, a forest cat, a wall lizard have to be mentioned. The park serves as a shelter not only for them, but also for the centuries-old beech forest. This is one of the most important ecological objects in the country.
