A 500-kilometre network of waterways runs through the Spree Forest. Out-of-the way places can often only be reached by punt. Even the local post is delivered in this manner. Which is why punt building is still an active and highly valued part of the local economy. A master craftsman will take about eight days to build a typical Spree Forest punt. Artisan boat builders can be seen demonstrating their craft at venues such as the open-air museum in Lehde, which is best reached – how else? – by punt.
