CTOUR on tour: Once around Brandenburg

The special premiere: Houseboat raft adventure on the Havel

CTOUR Captain Hans-Peter Gaul prefers almost magically on the water. Normally on board cruise giant, this time it is a dwarf, which it has done to the Thuringia: a houseboat raft type Havel cruiser. He's still a rookie, because only released in May 2015 water. From the Müritz are now seven boats - or shall we say floating homes? - Was piggybacked shipped by truck to their berth in Brandenburg.

From 2 to 3 June, he has the Number 4, so the prosaic name, tested on a course around Brandenburg together with other CTOURisten. Although already houseboat learn, but less with maneuvers, he has equated to power and wanted to know now precisely: How actually moves as a floating bungalow? For this he needs a boat license.

All right, Captain!

All right, Captain!

The backward-out-of-parking space-Drive manages almost brilliantly - to touchieren without the tight limit stakes of the berth at the Potsdamer Straße. Machine backwards, namely sooo slow, then the rudder to the right, pardon starboard Laying, stop, rudder to port and then just straight ahead. Almost like a car, he says and smiles relaxed at the camera. The waterway Atlas shows him that he has to leave the looming ahead green bin are right, the red portside. Also must be driven right. Everything of course with a small ride, than ten kilometers per hour are allowed here max. More does not give the 15 hp engine also produces. For correct Power would need also the official boat license.

- He has now earned - addition to the Havel - to Berg, as it is called in the skipper language, upriver. A freighter comes to meet and compels Hans-Peter - incidentally speaking on board all by You and first name - respect from. My God, the Colossus I do not want to come across the bows! Cinematographer Jeremy proves him right and Experienced precaution talk back if not threatened from there danger in the form of another ship. All right, Captain!, it reports, so Hans-Peter easily can cross the fairway to the Wurster puncture drive. The promises pure nature and zero main fairway-stress.

The four passengers are thrilled with the lush flora and fauna. This is a result of Havel straightening, one reads in Törnatlas. Based on the Peene in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, find Hans-Peter, is here the Amazonas Brandenburg. The temperatures, requires a maternity leave. Discard the anchor, calls the Jeremy somewhat inexpertly. His colleague Mike recalls that one might need to again and therefore should not throw away. Well, Hans-Peter found a nice place, but winds and currents push the box-shaped vehicle with its large windage and low draft loosely into the shrubbery. The anchor holds not quite what it promises. A residents grill lap at the shore is startled, but the refreshing bath now takes precedence. During the evening sun gilded the sky above Brandenburg, sets the Hans-Peter Number 4 Nose ahead at the Pier. So when he had done it umpteen times. Nevertheless, the sweatband of his cap with the inscription Captain is soaked. Probably just because of the tropical temperatures, he says, wiping his brow. The mini-galley, however, remains cold. Tempting is the Indian restaurant Mala Bar around the corner facing the city canal. If spicy food from the subcontinent and hausgebranntem mango schnapps that CTOUR crew can enjoy the evening. Aboard still follows a beer that has been pre-cooled in Havel water. Because a refrigerator is not Gibt's aboard. The you have to bring in the form of a portable cooler already.

Stylish: NORMA and BUGA

Stylish: NORMA and BUGA

This is the new, stylish generation houseboat rafts. Schick, with excellent equipment and strong 15 hp engine, free of license. With elegant patio furniture and casual deck chairs on the roof terrace, to read on Havel Cruiser-Website. And wondering if you lie in his little body just bunk: clearly too short for people over 1.70 meters in length. Since encounter head and feet to its natural limits. A ceiling for the duvet cover - also have to like to bring their own towels - one misses for the night on the cot. For this you can do without a shower, after all, one is on the Havel with the much more refreshing is a full-body bath in the river. Breakfast is served at NORMA. Since Gibt's sandwiches, coffee. These pure sun on the outskirts of the supermarket car park and joyful communication with no means morgenmuffligen Brandenburgern. The suburban lock Brandenburg must be passed, the signs are happily green. Fore and aft canvas are easy is not moored. Otherwise it depends on the boat!, warns skipper Peer, because the examiner has only a kitchen knife. A detour to the BUGA Havel region in 2015 must be. With prominent berth before Jahrtausendbrücke and the Packhof, the Old Location next to the museum harbor with steamers Nordstern and Luise. For lunch at Noodles with Vegetables is opposite during the Vietnamese left of the bridge for 1.80 euros apiece.

Cooling in Beetzsee

Cooling in Beetzsee

Thus fortified, we decide left around, therefore continue in the Brandenburg Lower Havel to Breitlingsee we reach Green journey to seven kilometers. Everything screams for swimming break, which is this time not failed. Straightway straight our man directs driving under the influence stylish Water vehicle at steelworks Brandenburg pass into the Beetzsee inside. Passing the regatta course to the next anchorage. The tropical temperatures scream after cooling. We find a place, stating: a) the anchor holds and b) the water is only chest deep. Because you can easily go once around the ship and shoot impressive wide-angle shots, to show them later with the words: Sooo great was our steamer! Jeremy turns to underscore this statement to the bow and are with outstretched arms the Titanic. Even the most beautiful afternoon we come to an end, and it is said after two hours of relaxation: Anchor and quote Marina! But before the deserved leisure time is again the Brandenburger Vorstadt lock. A huge thing that swallows even complete units being pushed - and if you as a hobby skippers lucky, a few boats.

Finale with locks Theatre

Finale with locks Theatre

The light is double-green, the door is open. The sport boot investors is full. The view aft is important because with weighty bow wave pushes the freighter EILTANK 30 from Duisburg zoom. The course takes precedence, which we also have him when we are stopped obediently at the right edge of the fairway, waiting to break in after him. But then the cavalcade of waiting sets off. Of course we let them go first and crossing behind the last motorboat the fairway. The moment a water Schutzpolizist dashes onto the quay and motions us to apply. You know what you did wrong!, snarls of us angry. We are truly clueless. Just before lock must not be one! On our objection that we have kept us quite right and no one hindered, he does not respond. The lock keeper will also tell you what, said the man in uniform. But the latter does not think and let us go. Call to the friendly skipper of the freighter DÖMITZ. The only thinks: In summer, it's your turn, in winter we! Not exactly tourist friendly, thinks me about this locks Theatre. Then it's back by train to Berlin.
