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.

There are about 10 million different birds, 2 000 species of insects; common porpoises, gray seals and horsehead seals live in the waters off the coast of the Wattee Sea.
