The 260 km long Aller river is known as the largest tributary of the Weser, and its waters are some of the cleanest in Germany. The source of the river is in Saxony-Anhalt, and it flows into the Weser river near Verden. From Dannenbüttel, the Aller is perfect for a relaxing canoeing trip. It flows past Müden with the mouth of the Oker river and finally reaches the ducal town of Celle. Up until this point, you only have to portage around a few weirs. The next stage brings you to lock systems in Marklendorf and Hademstorf along the Aller-Leine-Tal bird sanctuary. The Aller now widens and the flat banks, especially from here to the mouth of the Leine river in Hademstorf, afford a view over the particularly beautiful and expansive Ice Age glacial valley. The river snakes and meanders, finally reaching the riders; town of Verden. On the whole, the slow-flowing water of the Aller is perfect for larger canoe groups, families with children and inexperienced canoeists.
