The Weser river originates from the confluence of the Werra and Fulda at the famous Weserstein in Hann. Münden and flows into the North Sea at Bremerhaven. The Weser river can be divided into three stages: Oberweser (Hann. Münden - Minden), Mittelweser (Minden - Bremen) and Unterweser (from Bremen). The Oberweser flows through the scenic Weserbergland (Weser Uplands) with wide valleys and historic towns such as the Pied Piper town of Hameln (Hamelin) and the 135 km stretch from Hann. Münden to Hameln is a fun paddle for canoers with no weirs throughout the route. Several weirs await at the Mittelweser, and the Weser river is tidal from Bremen. Due to the total length of the river (500 km), the Weser is ideally suited for beginners and advanced paddlers, for day trips and multi-day tours. The Weser is accessible throughout the whole year, but we recommend the months of May to September. The Weser river boasts a well-developed canoe infrastructure with numerous access and docking points as well as rest stops along its banks.
