Following Berlin’s north west stretch through Potsdam, to below the town of Brandenburg, the Havel flows through a chain of partially quite large lakes.
This includes the Niederneuendorfer See (lake), the Tegeler See and the Spandauer See between Henningsdorf and Spandau.
Opposite to the Island, Grosser Wall, the Berlin Spandau Schifffartskanal (canal) branches off south east. Below the Spandau locks, opposite to the old town of Spandau,
the River Spree then flows into the Havel to pass later through the Tiefwerder meadowlands and the last of Berlin’s remaining natural swamp and pike breeding grounds.
Shortly after this, the Grosser Wannsee with the Pfaueninsel (Peakock Island) and the Jungfernsee then flows off west into the Sacrow-Paretzer Kanal.
