The “Blue Ribbon” land and water system is signposted and provides orientation on the Elbe, Havel, Unstrut, Oberer and lower Saale as well as on the Midland Canal and the Elbe-Havel Channel. The information panels, “Blue Ribbon”, mark suggestion points.

Numerous seas and beaches of which likewise belong to the initiative “Blue Ribbon” in Sachsen-Anhalt await swimmers, yachts(wo)men, surfers, divers and sun worshipers.  The “Geiseltalsee”, Germany’s largest artificial lake, is located in southern Sachsen-Anhalt.
