The Griebnitz Canal (German: Griebnitzkanal), formerly known as the Prinz-Friedrich-Leopold-Kanal, is a canal in the western suburbs of Berlin, the capital city of Germany. It consists of a chain of small lakes: the Stölpchensee (German: [ˈʃtœlpçn̩ˌzeː] (listen)), Pohlesee (IPA: [ˈpoːləˌzeː]), and Kleiner Wannsee (IPA: [ˈklaɪnɐ ˈvanˌzeː] (listen)), together with artificial channels linking them together.
The canal connects the Griebnitzsee, a lake on the course of the Teltow Canal, with the Großer Wannsee, a lake on the course of the River Havel. Including the three intermediate lakes, it has a length of 3.9 kilometres (2.4 mi) and is navigable by boats with a draught of up to 1.3 metres (4 ft 3 in). It has no locks, but is crossed by three bridges, with a maximum clearance of 5 metres (16 ft).
