For beginners, we highly recommend a tour on the Oberweser between Hann. Münden and Minden. Minimal shipping traffic and only one weir in Hameln (Hamelin) that can be accessed via a boat lane, ensure that canoe trips in the Weserbergland are virtually effortless. Even weaker paddlers are constantly pushed forwards by the current. Access and docking points are identified with the “yellow wave” signposts. Several canoe rental operators offer tours and also organise the necessary boat transfers. There is an adequate supply of overnight accommodation and camp sites on the banks of the Weser river.
