Just like many other towns Neuruppin has developed at a waterbody - the Ruppiner See (G. See= Engl. lake).
With its 14 kilometres it is Brandenburg’s longest lake. It belongs to the Ruppiner lake chain. Many of Neuruppin’s 13 quarters are located at the different lake shores. In between there are forests, hills, fields, and meadows. A paradise for vacation and leisure time. Some quarters can be "reconnoitred" from a deck of one of the Neuruppin passenger ships. Or you can make your own individual boat trip. You find a boat rental and the passenger ships at the lake promenade (at the end of the Fischbänkenstraße).
The passenger ships offer different tours - one of them goes to Boltenmühle.
