Welcome to Lake Schwielowsee

Lake Schwielowsee is one of the most beautiful lakes of the Havel region and does not only attract water-sport enthusiasts. The three villages Caputh, Ferch and Geltow are nestled directly against the shores of the lake, each with its individual charm.

Exploring the surroundings

And just a bit more than a stone's throw away are the city of Potsdam and the lively capital Berlin. The quiet and wide natural landscapes of the Havelland and, to the south, the Fläming also have their allures.
