Nature conservation and navigation instructions

From Müden to the confluence/Aller: boats up to 6 m in length and 1 m in width are permitted on the water between 16 May and 14 October from 9 am to 6 pm and when the gauge is in the green zone. (Members of the Deutscher Kanu-Verband (German Canoe Federation) are allowed access all year round, but must have a permit.) If the gauge is in the green zone, canoers can access the water during the designated times. If it is red, canoe trips along the river are completely forbidden. According to the new navigation rules for the Örtze, the current water levels, measured on the jetties, determine whether or not you can put your kayak or canoe on river. For more information, see the Celle district regulation on protecting heath streams, dated 18/03/2005.
